New Roku Private Channel Warning

Ruh-Roh … what is this?

There is a new message for the Roku user to acknowledge when adding a Roku private channel. Might be something like a pre-crackdown announcement or nothing at all.

In capital letters –

ROKU MAY REMOVE THIS CHANNEL WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE

Would not suprised if this warning is a pre-announcement for a crackdown on “questionable” channels given the Kodi add-on crackdown and the Mexico court order against Roku.  Roku needs to take action before petitioning the courts to resume sales. In addition, the house needs to be cleaned for an upcoming Roku public IPO.  Imagine the first board meeting with the new shareholders (ie. media companies) and on the CEO’s powerpoint of popular channels (ie. EBAY listings) are those streaming content illegally.

Might be a crackdown coming very soon to these channels.
