      We were unable to locate a schedule for this channel online.

    • rokuchannels

      It is posted above.

      • Steve

        I love this channel b/w on my roku. I just found out about it I watch it all the time. Roku should have more channels like this 24/7. This is a great idea and roku is great!

  • love-the-BW

    Just “discover” the BW channel and I really enjoy the oldies on this channel. Gunsmoke, Andy, Lucy, and Leave it to Beaver. The oldies but goodies. I hope one day you add the tv show Combat to the lineup, boy that was a classic.

  • G

    Excellent! This channel is what I have been looking for on my Roku.

  • genosgranny

    I like it, except that every 15 minutes I get a message stating my connection is down.

  • chuck

    what is wrong with b/w channel it keeps going off?

    • Karl Westfall

      Love it too,except your correct,it seems to be down,or just giving commercials (With or without video) the majority of the time.

  • mdareau

    LOVE the channel. but they need an audio limiter to trim up those breaks the blast audio at 2 am!!

  • Recalcitrant

    It’s Christmas Eve 2013 at 3:14 am. I joined the BW as soon as I saw the collage on the welcome screen. It had Perry Mason in the lower right corner. My daughter watched a Perry Mason on DVD and fell in love with it… I came online to see the line up of shows and it’s not listed. But their are several shows I miss from when I was a kid that I am looking forward to seeing again. Just wondering if they change the line up from time to time and if they do how often?….Merry Christmas and Happy New Year…. Recalcitrant

    Ever since the b/w did their update, every time I run that channel it royally f***s up my wireless router. I mean, sometimes I have to reset my router twice a day for a couple days. When I don’t watch the b/w, the router works perfectly all the time. Too bad, because I love that channel, but the headaches it is giving me are making me hate it. I am done, and will not watch it again.

    • Karl Westfall

      It hasn’t ever messed up my wireless router,”Yet”but I’m using R.O.K.U. instead of PC, but the channel seems to be riddled with programming errors that obviously there’s no one around monitoring,or they’d be corrected quicker.

    • Karl Westfall

      It’s not the B/W screwing up your router,it is your equipment.

  • keith

    the best channel on roku ive only just got roku and im addicted to this channel and the great films from the 40s 50s and 60s

  • keith

    love the old adverts on this channel as well keep up the good work and hope to see hogans heroes 77 sunset strip gilligans island as well on this channel in the near future

  • BS98

    This is one of my favorite channels on my Roku!! Thank you so much!!

  • Charlie Miller

    I love this channel! It has become my favorite Roku “spot.”

  • Leonard Shatner

    Like the channel, but could they lose all the cigarette classic ads? Why not more cereal or toy classic ads?

    • Karl Westfall

      I enjoy the cigarette ads,because they are retro,and I saw them new. Deal with it,and we can all enjoy the B/W,that is if they’d hire someone to monitor it. If your show doesn’t start after Delta Queen commercial,it’s another 1/2 hour of commercials,”NO SHOW”

  • Joe

    Do they have shows or is it all radio programs

  • Guest

    Seems the lone ranger does not work any longer. Just commercials

    • Karl Westfall

      It’s because they won’t hire someone to monitor the program.

  • 1AmericanFreedomFighter

    I love this channel, and agree it is done right.. Thank you!! So good to see some of these shows again.. On the most part my Roku, works well.. It freezes up now and then, but I much rather deal with that, than put out a bunch of money out for the crap you get on Cable/Directv

    • Karl Westfall

      It would be done right if they’d monitor it more. If your show don’t start on time,you’ll be watching retro commercials throughout it’s entire time slot. IE:Superman,and The Lone Ranger haven’t been on in a week, (Great monitoring) last couple of weeks My Favorite Martian was eaten by retro commercials,but is OK so far now. Look I’d love it,if it worked correctly,and I’ll bet they don’t even bother to read this page.Why should they? I mean if they’ve a product that they cared about,then they’d take care of it.

  • Karl Westfall

    I did enjoy it,but since no-one takes care of it’s programming,it goes on retro commercial rolls never showing the show.Superman,The Lone Ranger,are currently retro commercials,last week it was My Favorite Martian that got eaten by retro commercials,and The Addams Family never has made it to air “Retro commercials”.But in the case of The Addams Family,the commercials are a marked improvement over the show. “Addams Family sucked in 1964,and still does today. Do you need someone that actually cares if the shows are broadcasted? Also I don’t think B/W has very many episodes of any of their programming.

  • Jerry V

    The B/W is a great channel – still! I do wish, however, that they could get back to monitoring their channel and showing their, evidently, limited amount of episodes per classic show in an orderly manner. Yes, it sometimes freezes up (after a commercial break – funny, too:one of the commercials, for Charmin, takes place on a riverboat. It’s owner, Mrs Greene, reportedly haunts that riverboat, having been ‘sighted’ on various occasions over the years!) and they do run the same episode of a show, over and over, again. No matter, I will NEVER go back to Direct TV, or Time/Warner, where I paid lots of money and got, basically, nothing in return … one or two new films (that I wanted to see) in exchange for almost 100 bucks a month. There recently have been some new Roku channels which are very similar to the great B/W……Timeless Television and Timeless Toons. These are both streaming channels, one programs in half-hour episodes of shows from the 1950s, lots of different shows such as, One Step Beyond, Highway Patrol, Frontier Doctor, Dragnet, Capt Gallant, Martin Kane, Lights Out, Tales of Tomorrow, and DOZENS more, and ALL of at least very very good video quality. Although it is streaming, unlike the B/W, you can skip forward or backward to the next program. You can even repeat a show again. Only the ability to fast-forward/rewind is not available. The Timeless Toons channel has classic cartoons of the 30s and 40s …a lot of different ones from the ones offered on other Roku channels. Excellent! Check both of those channels out. They’re available at the Roku channel ‘store’ – FREE!. Then, again,
    there are some ‘unofficial’ channels that offer up 24 hours, straight, of The Little Rascals, The Three Stooges, Star Trek, and classic Looney Tunes …no commercials, either. I don’t know if I should mention the channel, as it is not a roku channel. But, it is well worth the search if you find them. Nowhere TV (a Roku channel) does have some classic toon channels, Kartoon Klassics. They run the same stretch of cartoons, repeating their schedule every three days. It’s another good one.

  • Jerry V

    I particularly enjoy, among many of the other classic shows broadcast on The B/W: Car 54, Where Are You?, Sgt Bilko, Superman, Gunsmoke, Dennis The Menace, Mike Hammer, Peter Gunn, Dragnet, Amos & Andy, The Invisible Man, Fireball XL-5, The Addams Family, Mr Ed, and My Favorite Martian. I realize that nowadays, many of these don’t play on B/W, having the half hour’s worth of commercials instead. they all used to play correctly, not so very long ago….maybe around October. i hope that the B/W can get their monitoring of their programming straightened out and once again have these shows broadcast, once again, without the glitches.

  • superzeeman

    This channel is wonderful except if you watch a lot like I do you will see the same episode of a show that you watched last week or the week before so the bench is not as deep as I would like. But I still love watching. If all ROKU channels were built this way I would be so happy.
