Roku and FOX tonight confirmed to Cord Cutters News that a deal to keep FOX Channels on Roku Players and Roku TVs has been reached. Exact terms of the agreement have not been announced, but Roku owners will now keep their FOX Sports, Fox News, & other Fox Roku Channels.
We are delighted that we reached an agreement with FOX to distribute FOX channels on the Roku platform.
Roku customers can stream the Super Bowl through FOX Now, Fox Sports and NFL in addition to other ways.

This deal comes after Roku warned Roku owners that if a deal was not reached by the end of today, Roku would be forced to remove all FOX owned Roku Channels. Now, this new deal keeps FOX owned Roku channels like FOX sports on Roku Players and Roku TVs.
This is great news for sports fans as Roku owners will be able to stream the Super Bowl in 4K on supported Roku Players and Roku TVs through the Fox Sports Roku Channel for free.
Currently, some FOX Roku Channels are still missing from the Roku Channel store at the time this story was published. Look for them to be quickly readded now that this deal has been announced. Cord Cutters News will post updates once we see that they have been readded.
This is breaking news more coming soon.
