Roku does not require a monthly fee. Once you purchase a Roku streaming device or a Roku TV, there are no additional monthly equipment fees. Roku offers the ability to watch free channels without a monthly payment. You would only need to pay for subscriptions to paid streaming services or channels like Netflix, Hulu, or cable-replacement services like Sling TV, or for movie and TV show rentals from services such as Prime Video or Apple TV.
To provide a bit more context:
- Roku streaming players start at $29.99 and Roku TV models are available at various price points fitting different budgets.
- After purchasing the device, you can watch free channels with no monthly costs.
- A Roku account is required to activate and use the device, which is completely free, ensuring there are no monthly charges simply for having a Roku account.
