Roku reaches 10m player milestone
September 16, 2014
Streaming media platform Roku has revealed it has sold 10 million Roku players in the United States.
A post on the company blog describes it as “a huge milestone” thanking all its users for helping Roku achieve it. “We are dedicated to bringing consumers the best streaming TV experience and we’re grateful that our fans continue to support and recognise us for making America’s favourite streaming players,” says Roku.
“Just over six years ago we shipped the very first Roku player to stream Netflix to the TV and now our players are synonymous with TV streaming. Today Roku players feature more than 1,800 channels – that’s 1,000 more channels than available on other streaming players,” it points out.
“And because of this vast selection of entertainment, Roku players stream more than other streaming players. In fact, new NPD data found that Roku is the popular choice among streaming players and accounts for an aggregate 37 million hours of video streamed per week compared to Apple TV at 15 million hours, Chromecast at 12 million hours and Amazon Fire TV at six million hours. You’re also referring your friends to Roku more than any other streaming device, according to NPD,” it notes.
