    Too bad you make this show up on the TV screen, where the Roku is. It would be a lot more useful that way.

    These are NOT new releases, unless by “new” you mean six months old. Sheesh.

  • Disregard the simple-minded comments below Roku team. Thanks for this release list, I always read them. It’s very informative and some of us actually appreciate it! Rock on Roku!

      exactly ^^^^ Plus, it is not Roku that “releases” them, it’s each perspective vendor that releases them. Some people are … well, nevermind.

    Goon is such a good movie! I highly recommend it.

    These are new releases, meaning they’ve just been added to the available movies, etc. Roku and HuluPlus are the best at TV and movies I’ve seen anywhere. I’ve never enjoyed watching videos, movies, TV, etc., since installing my Roku system and subscribing to HuluPlus. Roku is always adding new channels, most of them are free. In my opinion HuluPlus is much better than NetFlix. If movies is your thing, you’ll enjoy NetFlix more. If TV and movies is your thing, HuluPlus is for you.

  • Love my Roku player! Dropped satellite months ago and don’t miss it. Between HuluPlus, Netflix, Amazon and Newscaster, I can access the TV shows and movies I want when I want them!

    Goon is a very good movie- I highly recommend it
