“As the leading TV streaming platform, Roku aims to make television better for everyone,” said Anthony Wood, Founder and CEO, Roku. “In a world where one day all TV will be streamed, we’re immensely proud to be the programmer of the home screen for more than 80 million active accounts around the globe, connecting people directly to what they love to watch.”

In 2023, Roku launched its own line of TVs and expanded the Roku TV licensing program to include more than 30 partners, furthering the reach of the Roku Operating System (OS). In select markets, user experience updates, new features, and content discovery tools like the Sports Experience, What to Watch, All Things Food, and All Things Home were added to the platform. These enhancements, plus a more informative and engaging Roku search, have led to increased time spent on the platform and an easier, more enjoyable experience for the Roku user.

Since the launch of its first streaming player in 2008, Roku has put the needs and experience of the consumer at the center of its offerings, such as The Roku Channel and Roku’s purpose-built OS. Through its streaming players, Roku TV program, Roku-branded TVs, and continuous innovation on its platform, the company will continue to grow its scale and deliver a best-in-class TV streaming experience for viewers. This continued growth helps the company on its mission to be the global TV streaming platform that connects and benefits the entire TV ecosystem, connecting content partners to an engaged audience and providing advertisers with unique capabilities to reach viewers.
