  • Sling TV Adds Free Cloud DVR to Its Freestream Service
    by RokuGuide on January 23, 2024 at 3:40 pm

    Have you ever wished you could record shows on free linear streaming channels for later viewing? Sling TV now provides 10 hours of free cloud DVR storage on its free ad-supported streaming television (FAST) service, Sling Freestream, allowing users to DVR popular shows like The Walking Dead, Love After Lockup, South Park, and many more. Launched in February 2023 as a competitor to other FAST service like Pluto TV and The Roku Channel, Sling Freestream has more than 500 channels, including popular channels like ESPN On Demand, Comedy Central, LiveNOW, and Architectural Digest. In addition to many other news, sports, and entertainment channels, Sling Freestream carries 110 international channels in more than 15 languages. Sling Freestream is free through the SLING app on Roku and other devices. No account is required to watch Freestream, but the cloud DVR service is available only to those account holders. A Sling Freestream account, which is free and does not required a credit card, also enables viewers to add programs to their watchlist and save their favorite channels. Cloud DVR storage is available immediately to all new users who create a free account on Sling Freestream. Sling reports that the DVR services will be fully rolled out to all existing Freestream users over the next several months. More information on the Sling TV Roku app can be found here.

  • More Ads Are Coming To Your Roku Home Screen
    by RokuGuide on January 20, 2024 at 12:36 am

    It may seem like Roku is already overloading the Roku home screens with too many ads, but apparently there's room for even more. AdExchanger reports that they were told by Kristina Shepard, Roku's VP of global ad sales and partnerships, that we can "expect to see Roku 'immerse advertisers in more parts of the home screen' via interactive and shoppable ad formats." You may think that ads should be non-existent because you already paid for your Roku device, but Roku didn't make any money off of your hardware purchase. According to The Motley Fool's Adam Levy, Roku sold $471 million worth of streaming devices over the 12 months that ended in Sept. 2023, but Roku's manufacturing cost was $538 million. And that's just manufacturing, which doesn't account for overhead costs, marketing, or research and development. Roku's real business is not TVs and streaming media players, it's advertising, which produced $2.9 billion in revenue for Roku during the same 12 months. Basically, advertisements on the Roku platform are subsidizing the cheap hardware. Roku, of course, is not the only brand to be pushing ads on their devices. Amazon Fire TVs, for example, last year started auto-playing full-screen ads when the device is turned on. Vizio tested pop-up ads over TV shows in 2022 and now sells "direct-to-device ad experiences" on their TV home screens. While many Roku users will hate the addition of more ads to the Roku home screen, most users will undoubtedly just ignore them and click on through to whatever app is streaming the content they came to see. But many more will interact with those ads, as evidenced by a Vizio case study showing that "audiences exposed to the Home Screen promotions tuned in more than twice that of those who weren't exposed to the promotions (lift in tune-in from control to exposed audience was 119%)." As pointed out by AdExchanger, "One of the selling points of home screen inventory is that it's an opportunity for marketers to reach viewers who stream without ads before they disappear into an ad-free app."
