Legal battle of Roku in Mexico has taken a hike. A judge ordered last week regarding the stoppage of importation and sales of Roku devices in the country, but Roku was able to get a suspension of this order. A Mexico City tribunal overturned their suspension during current week and reordered to stop Roku sales and distribution. The request to stop sales was initially generated from a cable provider Cablevision (a company owned by the giant Televisa). The company claimed that hackers in Mexico are frequently opening Roku devices for pirated content and it is cutting & decreasing sales of cable companies. Point to be noted that most hackers frequently use WhatsApp for their deals.
A representative from the company Steve Kay mentioned in a statement that Cablevision will not allow the content that it licenses from foreign or domestic companies to be used illegally. We will also offer much better supervision such as Roku Inc. for using their software more perfectly and efficiently. Steve Kay also added in his statement that Roku has planned to fight against ruling and its general counsel and current new decision shouldn’t be considered the final words due to more complex legal matters. It is not expected that it would suddenly stop consumers from purchasing Roku devices in the Mexico. It is important that Roku products are still available for purchasing from Amazon website in Mexico.
