It is, frankly, ridiculous that Google and Roku are having a knock-down-drag-out fight over YouTube. RIDICULOUS. And the way things are going, YouTube (and YouTube TV) may disappear from Roku in December. If you already have it downloaded, you’re good—but you won’t be able to download YouTube to new Roku devices.

Roku has been saying Google is the bad guy for a while now because it’s making unreasonable demands for special treatment in Roku’s search and more data about you. Google denied that accusation. And now we have a leaked email that suggests someone isn’t telling the whole truth here. It sure doesn’t look good. Check out the top story for more.
