The Roku Channel reached an estimated 70 million people in US households in Q1 2021 and will now be able to show British storytelling from the ad-free subscription streamer offering new exclusive originals and award-winning documentaries. These include royal documentaries in The Royal Collection as well as David Bowie: Finding Fame, The Prince and the Epstein Scandal, Write Around the World with Richard E. Grant, and Jennifer & Joanna: Absolutely Champers.

The Royal Collection includes My Years With The Queen, Queen Victoria and Her Nine Children and The Palace and The Press while David Bowie: Finding Fame presents the story of the Thin White Duke, unearthing the factors that finally clicked into place for him and launched a musician that changed the face of music forever.

Premiering on BBC Select from 1 January 2022 will be The Cult of Conspiracy: QAnon. The documentary looks at a political movement that is still enthralled to President Trump showing an enduring network of what are called “ferocious conspiracy theorists”. The documentary follows those at the forefront of the movement and asks what it means for western society and the shape of politics in the future.
