Fuse Media says it has reached a deal to offer a version of its Fuse Plus subscription streaming service through the Roku Channel.

The deal is the first time Fuse Plus has been offered through a subscription streaming video marketplace, and adds to Roku’s growing roster of premium subscription services available to customers through the Roku Channel platform.

“This agreement to bring Fuse Plus to Roku’s Premium Subscriptions offering is a milestone moment for Fuse Media, providing further proof of our brands’ appeal to young, culturally diverse viewers eager for vibrant, authentic representations of their own lives on any screen they watch,” Miguel Roggero, the chairman and CEO of Fuse Media, said in a statement on Tuesday. “We are excited to build on an already successful partnership with Roku, allowing us to share our award-winning, inclusive programming with even more of the vast numbers of young people who stream their entertainment content today.”

Launched in 2021, Fuse Plus says it offers more than 500 hours of exclusive television series, documentaries and other content aimed at diverse audiences. Shows available through Fuse Plus include “End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock,” “Miss India America” and “Made from Scratch.”

Fuse Plus costs $2 a month or $20 a year, and includes short advertisement interruptions during content.

In addition to the Roku Channel, Fuse Plus is available directly through the Fuse website as well as on Comcast’s X1 and Flex streaming platforms. A version of Fuse Plus is also available on OTTPlay in India.
