Quick Look: World Equality Television offers two viewing options: Free and Premium. The Free option offers ad-support viewing in standard definition, while the Premium membership ($4.99/month) gives you an ad-free HD experience and access to additional videos.
Available for free are 31 "Award Winning" titles, episodes of 17 TV shows, 17 "Classic Comedies," 31 "Romantic Comedies," and seven "Stand-Up" comedy acts. The premium membership will remove the ads and stream the videos in HD. Premium-only titles include six "Award Winning" films, episodes of four TV shows, 10 "Romantic Comedies," and four "Stand-Up" comedy routines.
It's not clear how "world equality" or the developer's reference to "the 2016 Oscar nomination controversy" works into this channel, other than being used as a marketing gimmick. The video library found here is a rather routine collection of public domain films, B-grade movies, and made-for-TV fare not much different than you'll find on dozens of other Roku channels.
