Streaming platform Roku has added nearly a dozen new content streams from Comcast’s NBC Universal, the companies announced this week.

The new content streams are part of a long-standing distribution partnership between Roku and NBC Universal that saw the streaming platform debut several NBC-programmed content streams last summer, including Today All Day, TNBC, Bad Girls Club and Universal Action.

The new NBC-programmed content streams landing on the Roku Channel this week are:

  • American Crimes
  • Bravo Valut
  • GolfPass
  • Lassie
  • The Lone Ranger
  • Made in Chelsea
  • Oxygen True Crime Archives
  • Top Chef Vault
  • Universal Westerns

NBC Universal’s flagship streaming service, Peacock, is also available for download in the Roku Channel Store, as are TV Everywhere versions of its channel apps — including NBC, CNBC, NBC News, Bravo, USA, NBC Sports and E! — some of which require a cable or satellite login to view live and on-demand content.
