Roku | February 13, 2023
Roku, the leading TV streaming platform in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and DoorDash, the leading local commerce platform, have announced a multi-year agreement to enhance the TV viewing experience and provide users with new ways to reach their favorite restaurants and more.
The partnership includes the following:
Complimentary DashPass: New and current Roku account members with a streaming or smart home device may get six months of DashPass for free. DoorDash's membership program provides customers with free delivery on purchases from thousands of restaurants, grocery shops, convenience stores, and retail outlets around the country.
Shoppable Ad Offers: DoorDash will be the sole marketplace ad solution partner for DoorDash U.S. restaurants and supermarkets that purchase interactive shoppable advertisements on Roku during the first year of the agreement. This first-of-its-kind relationship enables DoorDash merchants to include unique click-to-order offers in their Roku advertisements. In addition, restaurant marketers may now collaborate with DoorDash and Roku to attribute, target, and measure TV streaming advertisements on Roku.
DoorDash merchant partners may advertise on Roku directly. The consumer interacts with the TV ad offer, receives the promotion through SMS/email, and is sent immediately to the retailer inside the DoorDash app to redeem. With this connection, companies can simply assess and manage ROI from start to finish. Wendy's®, a longtime DoorDash partner, is doubling down on digital acceleration as a key strategy and teaming up with DoorDash and Roku to pioneer this new experience, providing freshly produced food to fans with even more ease. Roku subscribers who watch Wendy's ads will get $5 off any purchase of $15 or more at Wendy's.
Roku introduced streaming to the TV. It connects people to the streaming content they like, empowers content producers to create and monetize massive audiences, and provides advertising with exceptional options to engage consumers. Roku streaming players and TV-related audio devices are accessible in various countries and the United States through direct retail sales and licensing agreements with service providers. Roku TVTM versions are available in the United States and other markets through licensing agreements with TV OEM companies. In addition, Roku Smart Home items such as cameras, video doorbells, lights, plugs, and more are available in the United States. Roku's headquarters are in San Jose, California, USA.
