Roku, a leader in the on-demand streaming world, is adding more than 100 free live and linear channels to The Roku Channel and has created a channel guide to help viewers find what they want to watch. The change, starting Monday evening, comes at a time when streaming viewing is up, particularly news viewing amid a pandemic and rioting.
Today, Apple will launch a next generation TV guide concept during a product event in California. “The idea is that Apple wants to make it easier to find and watch video content without requiring users to sift through a bunch of apps,” Peter Kafka reports. The feature will work on the Apple TV streaming box as well as on other iOS devices like iPhone.
