Roku UK: New Releases and Recommendations for 7th August 2014

The school holidays are in full swing and many parents will be wondering how to keep the kids entertained, particularly on rainy days. This is why we have dedicated this week’s blog to the best children’s content you can stream this summer on Roku!

Let us know what your kids like to watch on Roku in the comments box below.

  • Rio 2 (Movie) - It’s fiesta time again as we rejoin city parrot Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg) and his free-spirited other half Jewel (Anne Hathaway) for their second South American escapade. In this fine-feathered adventure, Blu takes his fledgling family to the Amazon for a taste of the great outdoors. From the familiar quirky characters and toe-tapping score to the fast-moving visuals and plot, it’s a rip-snorting odyssey that even brings them beak-to-beak with Blu’s old nemesis, cocky cockatoo Nigel (Jemaine Clement).
