Sky TV, NOW and Roku users get movies for FREE and the timing could not be better

It’s not often you get something for free, but that’s exactly what is on offer for Sky Q, NOW and Roku users. Just in time for Halloween, there’s a swathe of spooky shows and frightening films being made available …and it won’t cost a penny to tune in.

This free content is all thanks to the Roku Channel, which has announced that it’s boosting its offerings throughout October with five new films, including John Carpenter’s 1970s classic Halloween.

Alongside these hair-raising movies, there are three new television series to keep you up at night and two thrilling Roku originals that are all being made available to watch without you reaching for the wallet.

If you weren’t already aware, the Roku Channel can be viewed on all Roku-branded streaming set-top boxes, Sky Q and NOW TV boxes. Everything that airs on the Roku Channel is supported by advertising, so you don’t need to worry about adding another streaming service to your Direct Debit.
