Roku returns to stores in Mexico

The order blocking the sale of Roku devices in Mexico has been temporarily suspended last week by a federal Court, local media reported.

The commercialization of the streaming media player had been suspended after Cablevisión (Televisa) obtained a blocking order alleging theft of content.

Roku’s general counsel Steve Kay said the company “is pleased with the court’s decision as it opens the way to resume the sale of devices in Mexico,” El Financiero reported. Once known the decision, Roku began to work to restore the availability of its product in the country.

Before the resolution was known, María Eugenia Zurita, Director of Corporate Communication at Izzi Telecom told the Economist that “Cablevisión initiated a legal process directed at specific individuals and businesses for the commercialization of pirated content.”

 “It is urgent that Roku take the necessary security and supervision measures to prevent the vulnerability of its devices continue to affect fair industry competition,” she added.
