  2. Thanks for this site and this list. We are new to streaming and lookng to dump mostly unwatched cable. We already have an HD antenna for a few local channels here in the Toronto/Buffalo area. Where would I find out which of the above channels are free and which have costs? Is there a comprehensive list somewhere?
    Thanks again.

  3. All of the listed channels are free except that you have to have a Netflix subscription to watch the Netflix channel. I am very reluctant to purchase channels for the Roku given their history of blocking/banning channels without explanation. Playon, VideoBuzz, the Food Network, and the History Channel were all once prominent Roku content. Of these only Playon and VideoBuzz can still be used. Playon has to be loaded via a private link and VideoBuzz has to be sideloaded. So, if I am watching it on a Roku, it’s free 😉
