You might recall that Roku and YouTube have been involved in a pretty bitter fight that if they didn’t sort their differences out, the YouTube app may disappear from the Roku platform. And in fact it did. And things escalated from there.
Well, I have some news for you. They’ve settled their differences via a multi-year deal:
“This agreement represents a positive development for our shared customers, making both YouTube and YouTube TV available for all streamers on the Roku platform,” Dallas Lawrence, a Roku spokesperson, wrote in an email to The Verge. Google confirmed the deal to The Verge and said both apps will be available through the Roku store.
The deal ends a pretty bitter fight that I hope isn’t repeated as when two big companies get into a fight, users lose.
