Roku Is Adding Quibi

Roku is buying Quibi's TV shows and documentaries

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/08/roku-is-buying-quibis-tv-shows-and-documentaries.html

KEY POINTS
  • Roku announced Friday it has acquired Quibi's library of content, nearly three months after the short-form video streaming service shut down.
  • The companies did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.
  • Roku will make the Quibi content available for free on an ad-supported basis to all Roku users, starting this year.

Well, FINALLY some good news for all Roku users!  More new content-for most likely The Roku Channel's growing line up-coming soon to your favorite device.  CNBC reported on Roku's newest near future offering.

Looking forward to this becoming a reality real soon!
