A carriage dispute between Roku and Fox ended Friday evening as the two companies reached an agreement that kept Fox's apps on Roku streamers and Roku TVs.

On Friday, Roku said their distribution agreement with FOX Corp to distribute FOX channels expired on January 31. Following the expiration date, Roku was almost forced to remove FOX channels from the Roku platform.

Roku was still providing users with ways to watch the big game.

On February 2, Roku will be running a Big Game Guide on Roku devices.

Those with Roku devices can watch Super Bowl LIV on fubuTV, Hulu+ Live TV, Sling TV and YouTube TV.

Comcast or Spectrum cable users will be able to watch the game on the xfinity or Spectrum apps on Roku devices.

Roku TV owners with an antenna can tune into broadcast TV.

The game will also stream for free on the NFL app on Roku, unless FOX blocks your ability to stream it.
