Roku launches premium subscriptions for Showtime, Starz, and other services today

It’s an approach that’s similar to the paid add-on “channels” such as HBO, Showtime, and CBS All Access that Amazon offers to Prime Video customers. Roku thinks people might find it to be a more convenient subscription manager since there’s no recurring membership required. Each service offering a subscription will have a free 30-day trial. What’s less convenient is that Roku doesn’t have HBO among its partners, so you’ll have to get (and pay for) that one elsewhere. – Chris Welch, The Verge » http://bit.ly/2MCYstU
