Roku is now offering 30-day free trials of Showtime, EPIX and 20 other premium channels to help Coronavirus shut-ins pass the time.

Called ‘Home Together,’ the Roku initiative requires you to redeem each free trial on The Roku Channel, which can be found in the device’s channel menu. And take note: If you don’t cancel before the 30-day free trial expires, you will be charged the regular subscription rate for the next month.
