Bloomberg reported that the two sides made some concessions to reach an agreement. Roku will not sell HBO Max subscriptions through Roku Channel, as this will hide “valuable user data” from WarnerMedia.

With Roku, HBO Max has now solved the biggest living room pain point in the past month. In November, the HBO Max app arrived on Amazon Fire TV devices. Amazon and Roku together constitute more than 70% of the US media streaming player market.
