Roku lands its first streaming deal in Asia with Philippines-based PLDT tie-up

Now, through its deal with Roku, [Philippine Long Distance Company (PLDT)] will sell a dedicated, own-branded Roku streaming player and offer an accompanying streaming service from Q2 2017. The company said the content will include programming from its Cignal network, iflix and “content from global providers”, although a price has not been revealed yet. That represents a similar deal to Roku’s agreement with British broadcaster Sky, which also sells its box and service in Italy, among other partners. – Jon Russell, TechCrunch
