Roku resumes sales in Mexico

October 17, 2018

Streaming platform and device specialist Roku has confirmed it will resume sales of its devices in Mexico.

Roku device sales had been banned in the country for over a year amid a court battle resulting from hackers offering pirated content from pay-TV networks, such as HBO and ESPN, through the devices.

“We are grateful for our customers in Mexico who, despite the sales ban, continued to stream more and more hours; and for our retail partners and content providers who supported us throughout this past year,” Roku General Counsel Stephen Kay said in a statement. “We look forward to launching the latest Roku devices in Mexico soon and giving customers an even richer streaming experience.”
