Roku is stepping up fight against piracy

Piracy on streaming devices has turned into something of a hot topic in 2017. Numerous Kodi add-ons have been shutting down, and lawmakers have been cracking down on the sale of 'fully-loaded', ie piracy-filled, Kodi devices. Now Roku is tackling piracy issues of its own by cracking down on the use of its 'private channels' for streaming pirate content. People creating new private channels are being faced with warning messages telling them not to use the channel for piracy and that material can be pulled without prior notice. Engadget notes that it's not unsurprising that Roku would attempt to crack down on piracy now, given that it's hoping to go public in 2017.
