"Roku is heavily promoting OANN, Trump’s latest source for conspiracies"

Fast Company:
On Roku players and smart TVs, One America News enjoys prominent promotion as part of The Roku Channel, a free app that had 36 million viewers last quarter.


OAN Encore gets a big promotional thumbnail on the app’s main menu in a section for live TV channels, sometimes ahead of mainstream outlets such as Reuters and USA Today. It also appears in The Roku Channel’s “News” section and is part of a new live TV channel guide that mimics the grid menu on cable boxes.
