Roku & NBCUniversal Team Up to Add Shorts to The Roku Channel





Today Roku and NBCUniversal announced a deal that will add short-form content from “Saturday Night Live,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on The Roku Channel. This deal will also add NBC Sports short-form content at a later date.

“Roku is an important partner, bringing our leading entertainment and information to tens of millions of homes and broadening our footprint for our audiences and partners,” said Matt Schnaars, President, Content Distribution, NBCUniversal. “With this launch, together we will be able to deliver even more of the content that people want with can’t-miss short-form clips, all from the top talent and brands within the NBCUniversal family.” 

“When everyone’s talking about that surprise guest on Weekend Update or last night’s hilarious late-night monologue, Roku users will be able to pull up the clip in no time and press play,” said Gil Fuchsberg, Senior Vice President, Subscriptions, Partnerships and Corporate Development, Roku. “We’re thrilled to expand NBCUniversal’s offering on Roku to include this continuously popular content, for our diverse audience approaching nearly half of U.S. broadband households.” 

With this partnership, The Roku Channel will have access to even more NBCUniversal content on top of the on-demand and live TV channels already on the free ad-supported streaming service.
