According to a new report from The Information, Roku may be facing another contract dispute that may remove another big name from its screens: Amazon Prime Video.
While the direct battle with Amazon is over its secondary video service IMDb TV, it could bleed into Amazon Prime Video. The contract renewal for the service is due to come up next year, which means the two companies need to hash things out, and things do not look to be as smooth as one would think they would be at this juncture.
While this may be considered to be small potatoes as compared to its flagship service, in the past, Amazon has paired the two services in a “both-or-nothing” contractual environment that makes it hard to turn down.
IMDb TV came to Roku devices in January 2021, after Roku’s free streaming service, The Roku Channel, became available on Fire TV in October 2020.
