Roku has one of the largest catalogs of channels of any streaming box on the market. With so many channels it can be hard to dig through them to find the gems. New channels are added almost daily so we went through and picked out a few of the best new Roku channels you should try out.
HBO NOW is HBO’s standalone subscription service. You no longer need a cable provider to get HBO, and now it is available on Roku!

The NBC Roku Channel gives you full access to everything that is on the NBC website. Most of the content is 100% free with no need to login with a cable account. If you happen to have a pay-TV account, you will gain access to additional content. You get full episodes of popular shows and behind-the-scenes looks at what is happening on your favorite TV shows.
This is a great channel to check out even if it is just to get a taste for a new show you may end up watching on Hulu or Amazon.
