If anyone is wondering why it took so long for Apple Music to launch on one of the largest streaming platforms on the market, this could be a stumbling block.

However, the companies have not made their revenue-sharing agreement public, so it’s not clear if Apple made a special deal or decided to abide by Roku’s general terms and conditions to satisfy the sizable Roku market of 61.3 million active accounts. as of 1 sq. 2022.
