Roku will remove any app that carries pirated content.

Re: Uzzu.tv

Because Uzza.tv doesn't run their customer billing through Roku. Roku has given Uzza.tv a week to run their billing through Roku, which would result in Roku getting 30%. Uzza would have to either raise their subscription rates or absorb the loss, and they aren't in a position to do both.  

This was explained in a lengthy email I received from Uzza a few minutes ago. According to the email, the app works fine with a Firestick, and they will pay half of the cost for customers who choose to purchase a Firestick for watching Uzza. 

I went ahead and ordered a Firestick. If I like the way it works with my other apps, I will close out my Roku account.

Re: Uzzu.tv

Nice piece of fiction there. I wonder if they have written anything else?

Uzzu.TV is a pirate video Website. The NFL has exclusive deals with other services. And there are blackout rules for NFL games. Uzzu.TV gets around all this by stealing the content, then selling the stolen video streams to you.

But, sure, go with the "Roku is greedy" line. Ignore the theft of services.

Oh, and yes, Firestick is a good device. It's also one of the favorites of pirate services because of how easy it is to break the security and install apps that will allow pirated content much easier. But it is a good device.

Re: Uzzu.tv

Roku will keep the channel if they pay the 30%.  If the channel were not legit, why would Roku do that?

Re: Uzzu.tv

You believe an email from a bunch of lying thieving pirates? No wonder email scams are so successful.
