This information was first leaked or spotted on MacRumors, according to which Airplay 2 service will be available to users through firmware update on select Roku devices including players and TVs. It also stated that not actually all devices will get the update.
Reportedly, Sonos also get through this issue as well when it made Airplay 2 debuted on the Sonos Beam and Sonos One speaker. Means, this would be totally non-astonishing that Roku would also face such dilemmas while putting the firmware update on older devices.
However, in case if Airplay 2 for Roku, deal succeeds, Roku player users will be able to watch iTunes powered streaming movies and TV shows using their iOS devices. Also, this would be key to launch Apple’s nebulous streaming service as well on same platform of Roku without creating any additional app.
Airplay 2 for Roku deal to stream Apple streaming services makes a sense that the tech giant also recently announced identical deal with Samsung and other TV manufacturers like LG, Sony, etc, to bring Airplay 2 and iTunes to upcoming 2019 TV lineup.
Through such announcements and partnerships, the goal of Apple is to broaden its service globally when it will launch its streaming service. Means, the users no matters which TV or streaming device they would have, will be able to stream Apple streaming services.
But, none of the companies that is Apple or Roku has confirmed about such deal, and it all just being rumored. We will keep a keen eye over these companies and update you soon once the official announcement will reach us.
