Roku has added two new channels to its roster: CinemaNow and Red Bull TV.

CinemaNow is a movies streaming service previously known as KnowHow Movies. Like Blinkbox, it supports UV-playback on some of its titles. In other words, if your collection of Blu-rays have UltraViolet codes, you can type them in and stream or download the film. Handy if you mislay the disc or it gets scratched. Or you just fancy watching on your mobile or tablet.

It's supported on Android and iOS, and LG and Samsung smart TVs. It also lets you rent or buy TV series on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Red Bull TV, meanwhile, hosts a selection of extreme sports and lifestyle shows. Examples include the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour (motocross), UCI MTB World Cup (mountain biking) and the Red Bull Double Pipe event (snowboarding).

To get both channels, head to the Roku Channel Store and browse the Movies & TV section.
