In addition to offering the collection of free movies and television series listed above, Roku recently inked a deal with Saban Films that will enable Roku users to stream a selection of Saban's 2021 film slate for free exclusively on the Roku Channel.

The first Saban Films project set to debut on the Roku Channel will be the Michael Shannon and Patrick Schwarzenegger-starring Echo Boomers, which premieres on June 15. Other Saban Films projects scheduled to premiere in the near future include Happily, starring Joel McHale and Kerry Bishé; Percy VS Goliath, starring Academy Award winner Christopher Walken, Christina Ricci, and Zach Braff; and Under the Stadium Lights, starring Laurence Fishburne and Milo Gibson.
