RokuGuide Quick Look: An annual Roku tradition continues with the Roku Holiday Fun channel, which aggregates content from several other Roku channels, and throws in three versions of the Yule log. You can watch the HD Yule log with nothing to disturb you except the snapping and popping of the roaring fire, or you can select a version with Jazzy Christmas music or with classic Christmas music from the 60's and 70's.
In addition to the Yule log, here's a summary of the videos and music available on the Roku Holiday Fun channel:
- Crackle - Six holiday-themed movies and series episodes including Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights (2002), "Christmas Day at the Bunkers" from the 1970s comedy All in the Family, and the Seinfeld episode in which George's father revives the celebration of Festivus.
- Disney - A dozen short (around 3 minutes or less) clips from Disney videos.
- AOL On - 17 videos on seasonal decorating and cooking topics, such as seasonal centerpieces, table dressings, and making ornaments.
- Chow - A dozen videos with holiday tips, including "How to Decorate Cookies Like a Pro," "New Year's Champagne Cake," and "Candle Lighting."
- CNET - Ten videos reviewing popular Christmas gifts like the iPhone 5, Panasonic's Lumix ZS20 camera, and the Roku video player. There is also a rundown of the top games and gaming gear for 2012.
- Flixster - Eleven movie trailers for Christmas films, including Elf, The Polar Express, and Christmas with the Kranks.
- TuneIn Radio - Two dozen radio stations featuring Christmas music from several genres.
The Roku Holiday Fun channel also offers a screensaver that shows animated snow falling on houses. But you won't need a screensaver if you have the Roku Yule log burning full-time!
