Globe will launch a new Streamwatch device in November that will be powered by Roku. The company signed a licensing agreement that will allow Globe to tap Roku’s streaming platform, its operating system, channel store, and streaming players.

“Globe is one of the leading telecom providers in the Philippines, with millions of cellular and broadband customers. It is a logical next step for Globe to launch a streaming device to its customers to enhance their entertainment experience at home. With the Roku Powered licensing program telco operators such as Globe can launch internet-delivered TV services quickly by leveraging our powerful streaming platform,” said Andrew Ferrone, vice president of pay TV at Roku.
