This is the latest push by Roku to bolster its Roku Channel offerings. The streaming platform recently inked a film release deal with Lionsgate and brought on three unscripted dating shows.
“We are thrilled to bring our viewers this standout content from culinary and cultural powerhouses Martha Stewart, Emeril Lagasse and Chris Kimball — for free,” said Rob Holmes, vice president programming at Roku. “The Roku Channel’s impressive reach, incredibly engaged user base and successful monetization model continues to make it an attractive destination for content partners and established talent to elevate their programming and connect with streaming audiences at scale.”
