Livestream launches on Roku, brings real-time broadcasts to the platform
Livestream may have been stepping out of its comfort zone with the introduction of hardware tailored for prosumers. That being said, the company's still working hard on expanding its bread and butter: video streaming -- and what better way to do so than by being available on Roku, a streaming platform that's thriving in more ways than one.
Today, the Livestream channel will be making its debut on the tiny player, giving viewers access to a vast amount of internet-based programming. Of course, this includes live (and archived) sporting events, concerts, red carpets and broadcasts from more than 60 local US news stations.
"For us, connected TVs was the next piece of the puzzle," Livestream CEO Max Haot told us, adding that coming to the Roku is only the start of what he believes "will be many future developments on bringing Livestream to living rooms worldwide."
