Roku tells customers it is unable to strike a deal with YouTube

Article note: Well, that's gross on Google's part, even as compared to Roku's "Customer buys the hardware, Customer watches the screen full of ads, Services pay ~~bribes~~ to be supported/listed/promoted" triple dip behavior. At least it's YouTubeTV not YouTube. This is why (IMO) the general purpose computer behind the TV is a superior solution, the "appliances that interface with services" model is primarily a thing to support abusive rentseeking.
