Yes, you can view the Super Bowl on your Roku

Yes, you can view the Super Bowl on your Roku

Since Roku's announcement that it's pulling Fox streaming apps from its store, Roku's stock has dipped 6%.

At a tweet Thursday, Roku explained that its distribution agreement with Fox Corp. was set to expire on January 31 " so Fox stations were eliminated by the Roku Channel Store".

Laura Ingraham tweeted she recently got Roku in two rooms at her house and said the news "stinks". That same message was posted by Tomi Lahren and Jeanine Pirro, and Ingraham had a very similar comment.

Roku was forced to tell fans to head to rivals if they cared to watch. Roku praised the new deal, stating that its users can still stream the Super Bowl as planned through the Fox NOW and Fox Sports apps.

Fox had disputed Roku's characterization of the situation and said it wanted its apps to remain on the platform. "Roku's approaches are a badly timed negotiating ploy, making a catastrophe with no idea for the alert it created one of its customers".

Roku and Fox have reached an agreement that will allow Roku to distribute Fox programming on its connected TV devices-meaning that users will be able to stream the Super Bowl, the companies said late Friday. "Only Roku can pull apps from its customers' devices, and we would urge them to stop the intimidation tactics". Friday's sell-off reduces Roku's 12-month return to 172% and leaves it at a level last seen in November.

What's more, Fox Sports responded to the ongoing kerfuffle with claims that Roku is the only one making things hard for streaming audiences, and that pulling the network's apps amounts to "intimidation tactics".

Live TV streaming services like FuboTV, Hulu+ Live TV, SlingTV, and YouTube TV all still have active Roku channels, and because they all include Fox you can still use your Roku to stream the game if you're a subscriber. Many offer free trials for new customers.

You can still watch FOX59 on your antenna.
