For years now, pornography sites like Pornhub have been stealthily taking advantage of an oft-overlooked loophole in the streaming service Roku. That workaround, though, is going away.
The shift is a major victory for those fighting to expose the dark underbelly of the pornography industry, Dawn Hawkins, CEO of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, told Faithwire via email Wednesday.
Roku announced during its annual developer conference last week it is updating how it deals with private channels — uncertified channels, as the company calls them — that don’t appear in the service’s bonafide channel store, according to Protocol. The restructured policy takes effect March 1, 2022.
