“The Most Important Roku Channel to Date for Cineastes, Cinephiles and Cinema Historians” – Yahoo Movies

Fandor today announced a new channel available on Roku streaming players. The Fandor channel on Roku provides a new way for members to discover some of the world’s best movies from Fandor’s curated collection of independent narrative and documentary films. Roku owners new to Fandor can begin watching immediately via a free unlimited seven-day pass, available at

“Netflix, Amazon Prime, Crackle and a number of other channels featuring movies have long been available to owners of the various Roku devices, but Fandor currently stands as the must-have for serious fans of film.

A free trial membership of a week is available to try it out but you will not mind paying the nominal monthly fee if your love of film involves a thirst for movie history and something to stimulate your brain rather than to stimulate your need to head to Toys R Us immediately after the credits end so you can buy the tertiary merchandise that is the real point of 99% of films made today.”

  • Watch featured, popular and recently added films
  • Manage their own film queue
