If you're looking for Christmas content on your Roku player, you won't need to scour the channels looking for it. Roku, Inc. has done the work for you with Roku Holiday Spotlight. This new channel brings you four sub-channels of content from TuneIn Radio, Chow, and Flixster, featuring holiday music, holiday cooking videos, classic Christmas movie trailers, and even a yule log.
The Holiday Eats sub-channel brings you over a dozen videos from the Chow channel. Learn quick cookie cutting techniques, watch tips for making a pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes, and learn about several varieties of eggnog. If you're into decorating more than cooking, you'll find videos on gingerbread villages, easy-to-make centerpieces, and candle lighting.
While you're cooking up holiday treats or making centerpieces, put on some Christmas music from the Holiday Music sub-channel, which provides a selection of 25 radio stations from across the United States and around the world. Light rock from 103.7 Lite FM - The Christmas Station. Jazz from 181.FM Christmas Smooth Jazz. 60's and 70's from 103.3 WODS, Boston's Holiday Music Station. International selections include Smooth Christmas Radio from the UK, Christmas Radio Songs from the Netherlands, and Antenne Bayern Special Events from Germany.
Grab those fresh-baked cookies and a glass of eggnog and visit the Classic Holiday Movie Trailers to watch 13 trailers presented by Flixster, from the 1946 favorite "It's a Wonderful Life" to more modern flicks like "Elf" and "Home Alone".
And then you can turn on Roku's Yule Log while drifting off to sleep on the couch. It won't warm up a cold room, but the crackling and popping of the burning logs adds a touch of realism to an obviously not-real fireplace.
