A new streaming channel has been added to Roku's media lineup.    

Roku has announced the latest addition to its streaming content library. The AMC channel is now available on Roku players and Roku TV models in the US.

With the AMC channel, Roku customers can now watch full episodes and video extras from AMC original shows like 'The Walking Dead,' 'Preacher,' 'Fear the Walking Dead,' 'Better Call Saul' and more -- so long as they have an authenticated AMC subscription with a participating cable, satellite or telco provider. In-season full episodes are available for streaming the day after they air. In addition, all Roku users can enjoy behind-the-scenes interviews, exclusive extras, and trailers, even without an AMC subscription.

The new AMC channel is now available in the "Movies & TV" category in the Roku Channel Store on Roku players and Roku TV models, including the company's flagship Roku 4 ($130).

The Roku 4 is powered by a Quad-Core processor and features support for 4K Ultra HD playback at up to 60 fps, 4K upscaling of HD content, and audio support for up to Dolby Digital Plus 7.1 surround sound. HDCP 2.2 compliancy is integrated as well, along with 802.11ac MIMO dual-band wireless, 10/100 Base-T Ethernet, an Optical Audio Out, a microSD slot, and a USB port. Likewise, the device includes an enhanced remote with voice search, point anywhere use, a headphone jack, motion-control for gaming, and a speaker for Remote Finder alerts. 

In addition to AMC, Roku also recently added Discovery GO, Animal Planet GO, TLC GO, Sci GO, and ID GO to their library, offering access to several popular shows like 'Deadliest Catch' and 'Naked & Afraid.'
