In a statement published on Twitter, they said: “ We have agreed to a multi-year extension with Google for YouTube and YouTube TV. This agreement represents a positive development for our shared customers, making both YouTube and YouTube TV available for all streamers on the Roku platform”.
As previously reported by Broadband TV News, Roku has been discussing the renewal of its partnership with Google to continue to offer YouTube TV since April this year.
Roku was concerned about the presentation of search results, which it said Google wanted to circumvent by placing YouTube over other content providers.
Roku also said Google was discriminating against it by demanding search, voice, and data features that they did not insist on from other streaming platforms.
YouTube was threatening to pull its main app from Roku today (Thursday, December 9).
