Roku Channel Coming to Game Consoles?

Roku is pushing hard for the Roku Channel. The streaming device gained the streaming rights to many popular movies and television shows. They did this through a partnership with the following production studios:

  • American Classics
  • Fandor
  • FilmRise
  • Lionsgate
  • MGM
  • Nosey
  • OVGuide
  • Popcornflix
  • Sony
  • Vidmark
  • Warner Bros.
  • YuYu

Additionally, the Roku Channel is set to start airing news broadcasts. While this channel recently became available on Samsung Smart TVs, it is also going to roll out on video game consoles. This has yet come to pass yet, but a recent update in Roku’s privacy notices hints that it is on the way soon.

The privacy statement says,

“Roku may show you personalized ads on non-Roku OTT devices such as third party Smart TVs, set top boxes, media streaming devices, and gaming consoles.”

We are not sure yet which consoles will have the Roku Channel. However, we will keep you updated as any news breaks.
