Roku adds iPlayer and preps more UK expansion

Roku has added BBC catch-up service iPlayer to its UK service. The over-the-top service said it was about to make a raft of other content announcements as it ramps up activity in Europe.

“This is among the first of many significant content partnerships for Roku in Europe and we look forward to making additional announcements in the coming weeks,” said Clive Hudson, vice-president and general manager for Europe at Roku.

In the UK and Ireland Roku’s set-tops retails at £49.99 (€60) and £99.99 and allow customers to access iPlayer, Netflix, Crackle and other streamed content on their TV as well as browse the internet and play casual games.
