The Roku Originals launch will feature award-winning, scripted, alternative, and reality programming. Some of the titles include Die Hart, #FreeRayshawn, Reno 911!, Punk’d, and Chrissy’s Court. The company is also partnering with Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud to add the LOL! Network to the Roku Channel.

“The launch of Roku Originals will bring incredible, premium entertainment that has breadth, depth and diversity to the millions of streamers who regularly visit The Roku Channel and to many new viewers who may not even have a Roku device – and it’s all available for free. We’ve created a fantastic user experience to deliver exclusive, original content that’s accessible everywhere The Roku Channel is streamed.”

Sweta Patel, Vice President of Engagement Growth Marketing, Roku
