Google pulling this app from Roku devices and TVs — here’s why

Google is taking the Google Play Movies and TV app off of Roku devices and many smart TVs this summer. Fortunately, though, the ability to watch content purchased in that app is sticking around — in a different app. That’s YouTube, which already collects your purchased and rented content in the “Your movies and shows” section. 

Google made the announcement that this change will take place on July 15. The app will also get snapped off of LG, Roku, Samsung and Vizio smart TVs. And while the transition looks to not leave anyone out in the cold, there’s a catch here.
