Roku App Publishing


We have submitted a public channel app for approval on 21 Nov 2019 and the app is still under Publishing status. How long does it take to approve the channel ? We haven't heard any response from the Roku team on this

Re: Roku App Publishing

Sorry for being the bearer of bad news, but it's likely attributable to their year end blackout dates. Not sure if it's a result of reduced staffing during the holidays, or they do certain platform changes & take down the new channel & updating features during it.

Anyway read this blog post:

Specifically the "In advance of these dates, Roku will certify and publish as many channels in the publishing queue as possible. However, there is typically a high volume of channel submissions before major holidays; therefore, the certification response times may take longer than usual. " part.

I would predict about January 5th-12th-ish.
