You can’t get all the shows available on Metv from the given streaming platforms, but some shows are still working on them.

Here we go

Pluto TV 

It’s considered one of the best streaming channels available on Roku to watch Metv shows for free.

Here you’ll get some popular Metv shows including In the Heat of the Night, Dragnet, The Honeymooners, Thunderbirds, and so on.


As It sounds, freevee is another streaming channel on the Roku channel store where you can watch Metv for free. Additionally, you can also get the best movie collection in one place.

Batman, Perry Mason, Thunderbirds, and many others are the shows of Metv you want here.


Bonanza, Batman, Leave It to Beaver, Maverick, Dead or Alive and several others are shows being played on Tubi at no cost.

The Big deal with this channel is it has a feature called parental control by which you can arrange and make your shows protected from your kids. (If you want more kids oriented content, you can get YouTube kids on Roku TV)
