Roku has introduced two new offerings – one for movie buffs, the other for newshounds.
For film fans there is Flix Premiere, self-described as “the world’s first online movie theater.” Every 10-14 days, Flix introduces eight to nine film exclusives, as well as theatrical releases of movies, providing “a red-carpet experience at home with behind-the-scenes footage, cast and production interviews.” Films are chosen from top international festivals such as Cannes and Sundance.
Flix Premiere launched earlier this year and was already available on Apple TV and a range of other devices. A version for Amazon Fire Stick is scheduled for release soon.
You can visit Flix Premiere to learn more and peruse its library.
NewsOn’s ‘Live News Zone’
Roku customers will also find it easier to locate local TV news.
NewsOn has introduced a Live News Zone feature that is exclusive to Roku. Live News Zone enables viewers to access nearby stations broadcasting live. Every live station is available, with the closest 10 stations displayed first.
“Over 120 local TV news stations can be live at one time in NewsOn, which allows our viewers to have even quicker instant access to thousands of journalists covering stories that are relevant to them,” said Louis Gump, CEO of NewsOn. “Whether they want to watch live local news when traveling, or want to see local coverage of a major breaking news event from another city, NewsOn now provides a unique way to stay connected to local news coverage wherever and whenever it breaks.”
NewsOn viewers can stream local TV newscasts — either live or on-demand — from 175 markets across the United States via Roku, Apple, Android, Amazon Fire and other devices.
