Thursday, December 10, 2015 Now A Roku TV Channel Launches a Roku Channel to Bring its Lessons to Your Television

Ken Yeung | December 9, 2015

LinkedIn is bringing the power of right to your living room with the launch of a Roku channel. Starting today, all the courses available on the online education service can be viewed on the largest screen in your home — all you need is a membership and a Roku device.
It’s been eight months since LinkedIn acquired for $1.5 billion, and this is the first major update since then. By making the site’s 4,000 courses available right on the Roku device, the company is hoping that you no longer feel resigned to huddling around a small laptop or desktop monitor screen. Instead you can sit on your couch with your friends or family, watching comfortably as you learn a new skill.

Within Roku’s service, find the channel under the “Educational” category. From there, add it to your dashboard and then authenticate using your existing username and password. Having a subscription is mandatory, but after logging in, you’ll be able to scroll through various categories such as 3D and animation, audio and music, business, and others. The experience should be exactly like you had before, but now on a bigger screen.
[...] Membership in starts at $25 a month per person, but what’s interesting is that with television support, more people will be able to take advantage of classes.
