RokuGuide Quick Look: ABC News offers both live and on-demand video on their Roku channel. The channel launches with a news video already streaming, but pressing the "back" button on your remote will bring up the channel's menu with additional content. Choices include "Featured" categories (current topics include "2016 in Review," "Remembering George Michael," and "Berlin Market Attack") and "Livestreams" (which are mostly webcams that currently include "Live Look at Old Faithful Geyser," "'View into the Blue' Underwater Cam," and "Live View of 5th Avenue Entrance to Trump Tower in NYC"). There are several other categories available in the main menu, but I recommend that you scroll down to the bottom of the page where you'll find several links to much-more comprehensive sub-menus:
