Miss Universe 2023: The Miss Universe Organization is constantly looking towards the future,” CEO Amy Emmerich said in a statement to THR. “For the first time ever, Americans are watching more streaming TV than cable. With this profound shift in the way audiences watch content underway, we’re thrilled to partner with the Roku Channel to bring the Miss Universe competition to the streaming world and reach previously untapped audiences across the United States. We are elated to be partnering together to find more innovative, new ways to tell the stories of these incredible women.
The Miss Universe show, which has aired on Fox for five of the previous six years, is being broadcast for the first time on a streaming service following Miss America telecast’s move to streaming last year.
The Roku Channel is thrilled to host the 71st Miss Universe competition to celebrate the achievements of women across the globe and give a platform to their many passions and causes, Rob Holmes, vp programming at Roku, said in a statement. “As more and more marquee events move to streaming, we’re excited to bring these exclusive experiences for free to our audience.
