Roku Stick 2017 2

Update: Roku and FOX have reached a new deal to keep FOX Channels on Roku. You can learn more HERE. 

Today Roku notified subscribers that the stand alone FOX Roku Channels are being removed from the FOX app effective January 31st, 2020. Roku did not explain why or exactly what channels are being affected but this.

Update #3: Roku owners will be able to stream the game for free through the NFL Network app.

Update: Roku sent Cord Cutters News the following statement:

Roku’s distribution agreement with FOX Corp is set to expire on Jan. 31. We offered FOX an extension so that Roku can continue to bring a large and valuable audience to FOX. If an agreement is not reached, we will be forced to remove FOX channels from the Roku platform.
Meanwhile customers can view FOX programming including the big game in many other ways on the Roku platform including through Fubo, Sling TV, Hulu Live, You Tube TV and other ways. Many offer free trials for new customers.
Our discussions with Fox continue and we hope that Fox will work to reach an agreement soon.
Update #2: FOX sent Cord Cutters News the following statement:

“Roku’s threat to delete FOX apps from its customers’ devices is a naked effort to use its customers as pawns.  To be clear, FOX has not asked Roku to remove our apps, and we would prefer Roku continue to make them available without interruption.  Roku’s tactics are a poorly timed negotiating ploy, fabricating a crisis with no thought for the alarm it generated among its own customers. Even if Roku unilaterally decides to remove FOX apps, savvy Roku customers know Super Bowl LIV on FOX will be ubiquitously available through streaming providers, FOX apps on the biggest streaming platforms and our website.  Only Roku can pull apps from its customers’ devices, and we would urge them to stop the intimidation tactics and reconsider the merits of irritating their best customers in pursuit of Roku’s own interests.” – Fox Corporation Spokesperson
