5 things to watch on Roku

What to watch on Roku for May and June? In order to keep you entertained while in lockdown, we've got five great suggestions of what to watch on the Roku channel in May and June. 

For Bank Holiday Monday (25th May) you could start a movie marathon – James Bond or Harry Potter – and spend the three day weekend on the sofa. 

June 1st is Morgan Freemans birthday which means it's only right that we watch either Seven, The Shawshank Redemption, Bruce Almighty or Million Dollar Baby

On the 9th June falls Johnny Depp's birthday which means we'll definitely be looking for Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or Pirates of the Caribbean

Father's Day is June 21st so why not watch some of the best on-screen Dads do their thing? Adam Sandler in Big Daddy, Daniel a.k.a Mrs Doubtfire or Marlin from Finding Nemo all win our vote. 

Finally, the one and only Meryl Streep will celebrate her birthday on the 22nd June. This wonderful woman has 21 Academy Awards and three Oscars – why not watch Mamma Mia, The Devil Wears Prada or Suffragette to celebrate with her?
