PLEASE NOTE:- This information was last updated on Sunday 29th April 2018 with all channel details accurate as of Saturday 28th April 2018. In future, when viewing this list... you should ignore the original date of the post and, instead, refer to this section for precise details on when the "Sports" category listing was compiled.


As with the previous nineteen genres, outlined earlier, further details as to the specifics for each of these channels will follow at a later date. Again, you can expect similar overviews for the remaining genres to be added over the series of posts immediately following this one.

Next up will be an itemised listing of the "Themes" genre, featuring 19 Channels !!

So, be sure to visit this blog again soon for even more information on the Roku streaming media player, here in the UK.


  1. According to the Roku UK website Sky Sports News is FREE


    1. Hi, Andrew !!

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

      It's much appreciated.

      I've had a look at the Roku (UK) website and found what I think you are referring to under the banner of "Amazing FREE Channels" - although I did need to click the "right arrow" & scroll through the list to find it! ;-)

      This does seem very strange to me... because, in so far as I am aware, the only way for UK Roku users to view "Sky Sports News HQ" is to use the 'NowTV' channel (or, "app", if you prefer) on their Roku device and purchase one of the three Sky Sports (or, 'NowTV Sports') passes:-

      a. Day Pass........................................£6.99
      b. Week Pass......................................£10.99
      c. Month Pass.....................................£31.99

      This gets you access to all seven 'Sky Sports' channels, for the viewing period associated with the pass you purchased (i.e. day, week, month). Regardless of which Sky Sports (or, 'NowTV Sports') pass you opt for, the channels you can stream remain the same and are as follows:-

      1. Sky Sports News HQ
      2. Sky Sports 1
      3. Sky Sports 2
      4. Sky Sports 3
      5. Sky Sports 4
      6. Sky Sports 5
      7. Sky Sports Darts (formerly Sky Sports F1)

      The only way to maintain access to "Sky Sports News HQ" via Roku on a daily basis is to ensure you always have a valid 'Sky Sports' pass linked to the 'NowTV' account associated with your UK Roku device(s). Clearly, the cheapest way to do this is to pay £31.99 per month... since the cost of repeatedly paying for daily or weekly passes will work out more expensive over the same monthly period.

      There is a separate "Sky Sports News HQ" channel on 'NowTV' boxes which, although it would be compatible with Roku devices, has yet to be offered as a standalone channel to UK Roku users. Even so, this comes with the caveat that it requires you to have a valid 'NowTV' pass in place... meaning the least you will pay is £6.99 per month for their "Entertainment Month Pass" to "unlock" the standalone "Sky Sports News HQ" channel on 'NowTV' devices. Although if you have their "Movies Month Pass" at £9.99 per month, or have purchased any of the 'NowTV Sports' passes (as listed above) within your current month, you will also "unlock" access to - and be able to view - the standalone app for "Sky Sports News HQ" using 'NowTV' branded devices.

      Even the basic 'Sky UK' package, which includes "Sky Sports News HQ" will cost you £20 per month (minimum) to watch it and, as far as I'm aware, other than when it was included as part of the 'Freeview' line-up, available over-the-air (OTA) in the UK, it's never been truly "free" to watch it... as remains the case with 'Sky News', for example.

      IN CONCLUSION: I believe this to be an error on the part of Roku and I shall pass the information along to them to see what comes of it. The best that UK Roku users can hope for, in my opinion, is to be offered the standalone "Sky Sports News HQ" channel under the same terms as 'NowTV' box owners. This would (potentially) bring the cost down for those of us who'd like to watch "Sky Sports News HQ" but do not (necessarily) wish to fork out for all the other 'Sky Sports' channels in order to do so. However, since this is about the only "advantage" to having 'NowTV' devices (other than the initial outlay cost) over any of the UK Roku models available, I don't see this happening anytime soon.

      If I hear any more on the subject I'll post about it on the blog but, for now, I'd say it's safe to assume it was an error on behalf of Roku! ;-)

      Thanks (again) for pointing it out and taking the time & trouble to leave a comment here... like I say, it's much appreciated! :-)

      Hope that addresses the matter to your satisfaction.
