Back in October 2017, it was announced that Roku was adding single sign-on support to Roku players. This meant that if you logged in once you could access multiple apps on your Roku without needing to log in again.
At launch Roku only supported a handful of cable providers. There were also only a handful of apps from Viacom, A&E, Scripps, NBC, and a few others that supported the service.
Now it looks like Roku has quietly expanded the service adding support for more channels such as Disney Channels and Fox Sports Go, for example.
More importantly, it looks like cord cutters now have their first streaming service that supports Roku single sign-on with the addition of YouTube TV.
A little over a week ago I noticed that YouTube TV was automatically signing in to apps such as WatchESPN, Fox Sports Go, and Disney NOW. I contacted Roku about this and never heard back. Last time this happened was when YouTube TV support was added a few days before the announcement that it was meant to go live.
Now if you log in to the YouTube TV Channel on your Roku, you will find that you can access other Roku Channels without logging in again. Roku and YouTube TV have made no offcial announcement about this new feature but we have confirmed that YouTube TV has been added to Roku single sign-on has been there for over a week now.
Have you tested out single sign-on and found more Roku Channels that it works on? Leave us a comment and let us know.
