Fox Channels Removed At Roku Channel Store, Blocking Service Fans From Super Bowl
02 February, 2020, 00:21
While we work to continue our relationship with Roku, we are happy to keep our apps available to you, and we regret Roku has chosen to threaten your access exclusively to improve its own business interests.
Roku says fox has declined to come to an agreement to keep the streaming apps available to Roku users.
"Our distribution contract with FOX Corp is set to expire on January 31 so FOX channels were removed from the Roku Channel Store", the company tweeted in response to an inquiry.
Roku carries Fox apps, including Fox Now, Fox Sports, Fox News, Fox Business, Fox Soccer, Big Ten Network and Fox Nation. Platforms like Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV are the new gatekeepers of the channels that stream into people's homes.
"To be clear, Fox has not asked Roku to remove our apps, and we would prefer Roku continue to make them available without interruption", the statement read.
According to a Fox spokesperson, "Roku's threat to delete FOX apps from its customers' devices is a naked effort to use its customers as pawns".
Shortly after Roku warned its customers that Fox channels would stop streaming right before Super Bowl LIV, an updated agreement has kept the deal between the two companies going. Roku gets a cut of ad revenue from those streamed in apps on their platform.
The NFL said the platforms will be "free on all devices".

With the new agreement in place, Roku said that on Sunday, Feb. 2, it will launch a "Big Game Guide" on Roku devices to let users know all the ways they can access the Super Bowl LIV broadcast, featuring the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Kansas City Chiefs. "We will no longer have the legal right to distribute their content".
