ABC News is now available as a streaming channel on Roku players and Roku TV models – the first ABC News streaming channel to be available on Smart TVs.
ABC News VP of Digital Colby Smith commented: “Today is another big step in putting our audience in control of how and when they get their news. Roku users now have ABC News live video and on demand content, local news from several major markets and a wide range of historical video footage from ABC News’ archives. During breaking news and special events, Roku customers will have immediate access to multiple content streams, live 24/7.”
“The demand for video is growing tremendously and through all of your digital efforts we’ve been able to serve even more video content than ever before. Roku is a leading streaming platform, with more than 10 million players sold across the US, and we’re thrilled to have ABC News live on the Roku platform today,” Smith added.
