Roku To Close Loophole That Allowed Porn On Its Platform

Roku has announced a new ‘Independent Developer Kit’ and a new beta channel feature to replace existing tools like private channels. The former is a way for developers and hobbyists to experiment with apps and services without needing to use Roku’s software development kit (SDK), while the latter will allow developers to test channels with up to 20 users at a time. Private channels had another function. It let companies like PornHub put porn out of the platform.

The rollout of the ‘Independent Developer Kit’ effectively closes this loophole according to Protocol and The Verge. And those who use their Roku’s to watch porn have until March 2022 to get their fix. Thus if that’s you, consider yourself warned.
