Nick (Nickelodeon) now in Roku Channel Lineup. Free content

Fri Jun 12, 2015 7:47 am

New in the Roku Channel Store: Nickelodeon

You don't need a cable TV subscription to view much of the content. There are many ad supported full episodes.

Downloaded it last night, I guess this is the answer to Nick Reboot? No 90s shows, pretty disappointing considering the older library they could make available.

Those would likely pull less viewers and be harder to get advertising for. I know, you may disagree, I liked their 90s content too. But it's probably the truth.

Love it! Just another "pro" to hopefully cutting the cord someday. Found the Looney Tunes channel while I was at it too.

They could have older series in addition to new series. Advertisers will advertise on whatever shows are being watched. Hulu doesn't have to worry if offering old shows will attract less viewers, or if older shows make it harder to get advertizing.

Another one like NatGeo Wild, FXX, etc that they require a sub to cable or satellite to full full content. The odd thing is I have Dish and get all of these channels on Dish, yet Dish is not listed on their list of providers.

Streaming rights are usually seperate from the carriage rights that a cable/sat provider negotiates with a network for residential distribution. IOW, Dish has not anted up the additional $$$$ to give their subscribers TV Everywhere access for Nick.

Nice looking channel. Glad to see stuff going beyond the standard old roku screens. Nicely designed and unlike how you can few extra stuff while still in the video player.

I know the content differs somewhat, but you can at least get the Now TV channel in the UK and it has Nickleodeon, Disney Channel and Nick Jr; A 3 month subscription can be found for around 10 pounds on ebay.

I have been waiting for Looney Tunes on Netflix or something. This is the "something" I have been waiting for.

LOL!

Let's see... I don't have cable, but to get "Free" channels that are just like cable I have to get cable... and not just any cable... I have to get just the right cable...

Yep... sounds totally reasonable to me. A Roku/Cable fan's dream channel.

(ya'll do realize your kids will watch a house being painted for hours... check it out... put your kids in lawn chairs and paint yours... they'll write 10 page essays about the experience... maybe not today, but long after you're gone... and have spent their inheritance on cable... the essays may not be kind... be glad you're not able to read them from the great beyond).

(while they're in those lawn chairs you might see them sneaking a peak at the grass growing... basically they'll watch anything you put in front of them...)(buy a grasshopper and a bale of hay and you're all fixed up for the next decade or more)(the good news is while they're outside they're breathing fresh air)

(when they reach their teens - you're on your own, but the knowledge that you have some money left will go a long way for a favorable essay) (the 'father's day write up' can go one of two ways - it can start with: "My Dad, the idiot..." or "How I learned to be a great house painter... I love you, Dad...)

I wont touch anything on Sky on principal, biggest bunch of sharks in the UK, One of the reasons I got a Roku 3. Netflix is a fair price, Sky users can pay up to £58 per month, and a lot of my friends watch 2 or 3 of those available channels. Crazy!
