Once upon a time, in the land of streaming media, plenty of media bots existed.

You might not recognize them all, but you’ve undoubtedly encountered a few at your shindigs.

Oh, hold on! Not that HouseParty! It’s a goner and probably won’t be resurrected. Thanks, ChatGPT and StableDiffusion, our new party-pooping duo. Who knows when they might hatch a virtual reality house party!

Anyway, getting back to our lovebirds. I don’t have an official date, but my Wikipedia pal tells me that they’ve been bosom buddies for decades. Despite Roku’s playboy ways that saw him team up with Apple and Disney, Netflix didn’t mind

After all, Roku and Netflix were madly in love and complemented each other so well!

One had the remote while the other would stream. They’ve spent their days and nights together, streaming all the latest movies and TV shows and cuddling up on the couch.

They were quite a dynamic duo until an irritating habit started causing tension.
