Another leading media streaming company, Roku is again listed on the Dirty Dozen List because of the fact that it is a popular way for people to get backdoor access to hardcore pornographic material on their televisions.
Through the use of private Roku channels on the open-platform streaming devices, porn companies have created hundreds of private porn channels accessible through the devices.
“These channels are anything but private,” Thompson said. “The fact that Roku leaves its backdoor open to pornographers is applauded by the pornography industry, which widely advertises Roku on its various platforms and at pornography industry conventions.”
Thompson added that pornographers have gone so far that they are now offering people free Roku devices with taglines like “Put Porn on Your TV.”
“Pornography channels on Roku depict teen, incest, slavery and violent themes,” she warned. “This confederation between Roku and the pornography industry contrasts to practices of other streaming device industry leaders such as Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, which exclude pornography from their platforms.”
