Roku gives ugly app makers an ultimatum

Starting immediately, no new features will be added to the legacy SDK visual screens arena. Creators will be asked to move to the new RSG or Direct Publisher for Roku by July 1st, 2017. On January 1st, 2018, all channel updates will be required to use RSG or Direct Publisher. As of January 1st, 2019, all legacy visual screen components will be removed entirely from Roku OS. – Chris Burns, SlashGear
