Are you an old movie mystery fan? You know, black and white. Real Whodunnits with Noir and tough sounding dialogue mixed with the comedy of yesteryear?

I bought all of the Thin Man movies and got a Blu Ray player last Christmas to watch them and my Charlie Chan Collection.

BUT IF YOU HAVE ROKU on your TV I recommend the Free Channel you can add called TV TIME COZY MYSTERIES. It has all six of the Thin Man Movies and no commercials.

There are many other old Mystery Series available too. Think Charlie Chan, Torchy Blane, The Lone Wolf, The Shadow, Agatha Christie (with all Margaret Rutherford Miss Marple Movies), Boston Blackie. Bulldog Drummond, Dick Tracy, Ellery Queen, The Falcon, Mr. Moto, Nancy Drew, and a few others.

I’ve found some of the above free on YouTube, but this channel has pretty much the whole series on each of them. The caveat? There are some commercials, but there are some with no commercials too. Most are 1-2 minutes between breaks.

Many newer TV’s have the Roku app built in, but if yours doesn’t you can always buy the Roku Streamng media player and remote for $40 at Best Buy. For $10 more you can upgrade to a voice activated media player.

There are tons of free channel apps and many have old mystery channels, but none as good as TV Time’s. Search for the channel and add it to your ROKU lineup and you are ready to go.
