We may never know the full story as to why DIRECTV NOW on Roku was delayed. Though it likely has to do with AT&T’s efforts to get it right and make sure the service was stable when it rolled out to the massive Roku user base.

“Roku is a leader in streaming entertainment and millions of homes in the U.S. have Roku devices,” said Brad Bentley, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, AT&T Entertainment Group. “DIRECTV NOW is about bringing customers entertainment their way, so launching on the Roku platform was an important part of our strategy.”

“AT&T’s robust DIRECTV NOW service is an incredible offer for our customers who expect premium streaming entertainment at a great value,” said Steve Shannon, general manager, content and services, at Roku. “Getting consumers to the content they want the most has always been our focus.”
