What Roku Channel Category has the Most Channels? It’s Not Movies & TV.

With Roku’s staggering popularity, growth and OTT market-share dominance, it’s no surprise that businesses and content owners of all sizes are rushing to build Roku channels of there own.

While it seems that everyone I know is watching Movie & TV channels like Netflix, Amazon, Baby Boomer TV, Hulu and others, one might think that the Movie & TV category has the most channels, when in fact it is the second most popular category for Roku channel developers.

The most popular category is Religious with 1,319 channels (22.6% of all Roku channels) with Movies & TV coming in second with 883 channels (15.1% of all Roku channels).
