Insider subscribers (see Fees section below) can stream (ad-free) all 43 seasons of the former and all 20 seasons of the latter, as well as four seasons of The New Yankee Workshop.
The app also provides free clips for more than two dozen home improvement topics, from Appliances to Windows & Doors, 144 (at the time of our review) "What is it?" segments from "Ask This Old House," and 29 "Build it" videos covering projects such as adirondack-style outdoor chairs, a reclaimed wine rack, and a rough sawn headboard.
In addition to the video on demand offerings, the TOH Roku app has three live channels: This Old House's Live Channel, Outdoor Living Marathon, and Spring Spruce-up Marathon. Viewers can also select videos featuring 11 of TOH's experts, including Tommy Silva, Richard Trethewey, Roger Cook, Kevin O'Connor - just select one of these show members from the menu and you can choose from as many as 200 vidoes featuring that expert. Videos featuring Silva, for example, include "How to Identify and Remove a Load Bearing Wall", "Build It - French Rolling Pin", and "Splitting Firewood by Hand vs. Machine."
New subscribers can get a 7-day free trial through the TOH app. Existing subscribers, and those who prefer to subscribe through the TOH website, can sign into the app with their existing Insider credentials (email and password).
