Google Issues Roku A Takedown Notice For Unlicensed YouTube Channel

There are well over a hundred channels on Roku, but YouTube is officially not one of them. There was, however, a homebrewed YouTube channel until a takedown notice was nailed to Roku’s front door. This station was posted by a developer later hired by Roku, which might have lead partially to the legal notice. Roku now says that they’re in talks with Google, which will hopefully result in an official YouTube Roku channel. Until then services like PlayOn can serve up YouTube content.
