We have never paid for TV...Cable or anything.. We love our Roku!!! Several channels I like.. DrobBox: Download it to your PC,Laptop,Kindle or Tablet..Now any pictures you take or copy from FaceBook you can load to DropBox and view them on your TV via Roku!! Great for family get togethers as they appear as a slide show..Video's also work. YouTube: We use the search feature to find free movies, we don't pay for any movie channel. History Channel: They update this channel pretty good and have many interesting shows..Pawn Stars, American Pickers and Counting Cars are my favorite ones (I know they are staged).. There are many more channels, but these are the ones I use the most..
