“U.S. and LATAM are both key territories for us as a business,” said Riad Hawa, VP of hardware partnerships for Deezer, in a release. “Roku’s presence and user base in those areas make it the perfect way for us to reach more customers with our offering.”

Customers will also be able to discover Deezer’s signature feature Flow, a personal soundtrack of their favorite music mixed with new recommendations in one infinite stream. Users will be able to access the new app to sign up for Premium + in just a few clicks with integrated billing. U.S. subscribers will be able to access a special offer from Deezer for a three-month free trial.

Additionally, Roku customers in select Latin American countries will soon be able to launch Deezer directly from a dedicated Deezer button on their Roku remote.

This partnership aligns with Roku’s strategy to not only expand its market presence in more countries and regions like Latin America, but also partner with other application providers to enhance the capabilities its customers can access in their living room TV sets or mobile devices.

YouTube TV recently announced it would launch apps for Roku, Apple TV, Xbox One and several other devices. Earlier, Plex’s live TV service, which integrates over-the-air signals within Plex’s user interface, added Roku as a compatible device.
