Roku quietly announced on Twitter that they added the first local news broadcast, Channel3000 from Madison, Wisconsin. It'll be interesting to see if more local channels start broadcasting through devices like the Roku.
In related news, Dave Zatz discovered that Google has asked Roku to remove the unofficial YouTube channel.
The YouTube channel remains functional for the folks who’ve previously activated it, yet no new subscribers are permitted. I reached out to Roku who also corroborated the situation, saying “we received a takedown notice from YouTube’s legal team and are in the midst of negotiations with them.” They’re hopeful of having more information to share with the community next week.
