Roku users, we have some bad news.

The digital media player has pulled the YouTube TV app from it’s channel store due to ongoing disputes, according to USA Today.

The decision came after the Youtube TV’s contract with the digital media player expired and the two sides haven’t managed to forge a new deal. 

However, the good news is that Roku revealed it’s “taking the extra step to continue to offer existing subscribers access to YouTube TV on the Roku platform unless Google takes actions that require the full removal of the channel.”

Essentially, if you’re grandfathered in, you should still have access. New subscribers, on the other hand, won’t have access until a new deal is reached. 

Per The Verge, Roku told customers that they should “not delete the YouTube TV app as it will not be available for download to Roku devices.” 

Dallas Lawrence, a spokesperson for the company, told the USA Today that he’s “disappointed” with Google’s decision to allow the contract to expire. 

“It is well past time for Google to embrace the principles that have made streaming so popular for millions of users by giving consumers control of their streaming experience, by embracing fair competition and by ceasing anticompetitive practices,” said Lawrence.

Roku has said the negotiations broke down over “unfair terms” that weren’t in the best interests of users. 

However, YouTube TV’s spokesperson, Mariana De Felice, said that the company was working in “good faith” with Roku and they are “disappointed” by the “baseless claims” that have been made as they continue negotiations.

WATCH: Freeform Drops 'The Bold Type' Fifth and Final Season Trailer

Raise a glass to the final season of The Bold Type.

Freeform unleashed a trailer for the final 6 episodes of the fashion-focused drama and things are heating up between old flames, while new ones are also on the horizon. 

Kat is still trying to get over her problematic hook-up with Ava, while her ex, Adeena, is back in her life. 

After a disagreement about children, Sutton and Richard ended their brief marriage. But it seems that all is not lost as the teaser shows them having trouble letting go (and still hooking up).

I have faith that Sutton and Richard will figure it out because they’ve always been #relationshipgoals. 

Jane’s continuing to find her voice and is possibly, definitely developing feelings for a writer that’s “under her.”

Watch the trailer below now:

WATCH: 'Stranger Things' Season 4 Trailer Focuses on Eleven's Past

A new promo for the upcoming Stranger Things Season 4 is putting the focus back on Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). 

Netflix released a new video, which dives into Eleven’s dark and heartbreaking past.

It also marks the return of her “papa,” Dr. Martin Brenner. 

The craziest part is that it seems like Eleven isn’t the only supernatural child in Hawkins. Do they have the same powers as she does?

Or is this exploring her origin story? A shot of the door marked “11” indicates that this may be a look into the past. 

Watch the teaser now: 

As fans patiently wait for new episodes — which were delayed due to COVID — a former teaser revealed that Hopper is alive and a prisoner in Russia. 

How do these two things connect?
