Just a point of clarification. Roku has not singled out VidAngel for deletion. They are removing all non-certified channels from all devices. This includes a large number of adult content as well. Basically, Roku is locking down their app support to only channels available within their certified channel store. It's pretty much identical to the way Apple controls access to the iOS and AppleTV platforms.
As to why Roku won't certify VidAngel, that is puzzling. But I have trouble believing the developers were not told why it wouldn't pass certification. Roku is pretty open about their certification requirements.
