Roku makes some of the best streaming media devices on the planet, which is why they also happen to be some of the most popular streaming media devices on the planet. Roku’s streaming boxes and dongles offer access to thousands upon thousands of channels and streaming services, and they pack it all into a wonderful interface that’s easy to navigate. As if people needed even more reasons to look to Roku for all their streaming needs, the company made two big announcements on Monday morning to celebrate National Streaming Day and the tenth anniversary of the first Roku player.

First, all Roku users now have access to free premium content! That’s right, popular content from paid channels like Showtime, Epix, and more will be available completely free of charge on The Roku Channel. On top of that, Roku is offering great limited-time discounts on three different Roku devices: The Roku Streaming Stick, the Roku Streaming Stick+ with 4K, and the Roku Ultra set-top box.

Here are details from Roku’s press release about the free premium content all Roku users can now access:

For the first time, content from select channel partners including SHOWTIME, FOX, EPIX, Smithsonian Earth and more, is available for free in The Roku Channel. Premiere seasons of critically acclaimed series from SHOWTIME such as Billions, Ray Donovan and The Affair; the addictive first season of EPIX’s dark comedy, Get Shorty; episodes of pop-cultural hits from FOX such as The Four: Battle for Stardom, with expert panelists judges Sean “Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled and Meghan Trainor, and host Fergie; Beat Shazam, hosted by Jamie Foxx; and Love Connection, hosted by Andy Cohen; as well as exclusive nature and wildlife documentaries from Smithsonian Earth, are among the selection of content that customers can watch in The Roku Channel for free through May 20. The Roku Channel is dedicated to giving customers free access to a wide range of films, TV episodes and live news. There are no subscriptions, fees or logins required.

On top of that, three of Roku’s best and most popular devices are discounted from now through the end of the day on Saturday, May 26.
