Roku and DoorDash Partner to Deliver Delight to Roku Users with Free DashPass and Access to On-Demand Delivery from their TVs
Roku (Nasdaq: ROKU), the #1 TV streaming platform in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, and DoorDash (NYSE: DASH), the local commerce platform, announced a multi-year partnership to build a better TV experience and unlock new ways for consumers to access their favorite restaurants and more.
The partnership includes:
According to internal Roku research, 1 in 3 Roku users order take-out or food delivery weekly. Furthermore, 36% of Roku users are interested in receiving interactive offers including a scannable QR code or text message.
“Streaming and delivery just go together, which is why we're making it easier than ever for Roku users to order their favorite food right from their TV,” said Gidon Katz, President, Consumer Experience, Roku. “Just in time for the Big Game, we’re bringing consumers and marketers the same leading scale, data, and tech that have made buying a new device or signing up for a service simple and delightful.”
DoorDash merchant partners can run ads directly on Roku. Consumers simply interact with the TV ad offer, receive the promotion through SMS/email, and are led to the storefront directly in the DoorDash app to redeem. With this integration, brands can easily track and measure ROI from beginning to end.
“We are thrilled to partner with Roku on this unique partnership,” said Rob Edell, GM & Head of Consumer Engagement, DoorDash. “While this offer unlocks DashPass benefits and perks for Roku users everywhere, it also provides our merchant partners with an opportunity to promote DoorDash offers through TV streaming. Consumers can conveniently and affordably get the best of their neighborhood delivered to their door, while brands can reach diners at the right time and drive instant conversion from the comfort of the living room.”
