“The first step in our migration of a software stack out of pay TV was to build a dongle, wchich is sold at retail and competes obviously with things like the Fire Stick and Roku Stick. We’ve seen good traction and good results from people using that product. We’ve continued to evolve it obviously as one does with a software-based product over time, but it’s really not the end game… What it’s done though is it’s helped establish with various ecosystem partners as we look at bringing the stack directly into TVs that we obviously have a product that is… offering real value… so we’ve been working on building the ecosystem, whether it’s content companies, TV-related partnerships, to potentially launch embedded Stream OS.”
