Quotable

“I’ll take a second and talk about the Roku TV program. It’s been hugely successful for us. This is the program where we designed the reference designs for televisions and then we work with manufacturing and brand partners to build and sell those TVs, and then we work with the retailers to help merchandise them as well… In terms of us making our own TV, there are rumors around that. We don’t speculate on rumors. I’ll just point out that the Roku TV program is a big area of investment for us… we’re successful not just because we have a great purpose-built operating system for TV, but we also are a great partner for manufacturers of TVs. We offer a full-stack solution and are really very helpful for them in growing their smart TV market share.”

– Roku CEO Anthony Wood on the company’s 4Q21 earnings call
