With its new Roku app, Twitter could potentially reach a number of additional eyeballs. It really adds more value to the entire experience.

Watch live sports, entertainment, and news like never before with Twitter on Roku. Not many folks are using the currently available Twitter for TV apps, but with Roku now in the mix, the platform's user database may grow to a competing extent.

Twitter and Roku worked on the new app together, which is similar to those on other platforms, though it doesn't offer Periscope support. Twitter has also announced that it will produce and host a 24/7 streaming news network with Bloomberg that will start airing this fall.

The company also detailed a number of other deals at its first-ever NewFront presentation in NY this week, including new and expanded sports deals with the WNBA, MLB, NFL, PGA Tour, Player's Tribune, and Stadium Network, as well as news and entertainment deals with Verge, BuzzFeed, Cheddar, Viacom, Dick Clark Productions, Propagate, IMG Fashion, and Live Nation. The company will broadcast WNBA games and a new MLB show (it already streams one baseball game per week), and Live Nation will broadcast some concerts through the app. Oh!

Twitter has been increasing its video content for years thanks to deals with various entities.

The Twitter channel is available for free in the Roku Channel Store to Roku users starting today and is accessible to anyone with a current-generation Roku device regardless of whether they have a Twitter account. Live stream the show for free and get the full story with all the Twitter commentary. This represents a big launch for Roku, bringing an often requested video service to the popular streaming set top boxes and sticks.
