Yahoo Screen Launches on Roku
Yahoo’s video platform, Yahoo Screen, is now available on Roku devices.
With the launch on a connected-TV platform, Yahoo says it’s designed the Screen app to mimic the TV-viewing experience. “A video begins playing automatically when opening the app, and you can flip between channels or videos with your remote control,” says Robby Stein, director of product for mobile and emerging products at Yahoo, in a Tumblr post.
Yahoo Screen offers users access to the company’s premium video library, including original series and syndicated clips from TV shows like “Saturday Night Live,” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” and “Colbert Report,” as well as coverage of live news, events, and music content.Tags: Apps, connected TV, Roku, Yahoo!, Yahoo!
