“As more and more TV is streamed in the future, we’re committed
to innovation that delivers simplicity, delight, and value to
viewers, creators, and advertisers alike,” said Anthony Wood,
founder and CEO of Roku. “The great news for streamers is that
we’re just getting started.”
As the company that pioneered TV streaming, Roku is the #1
selling smart TV operating system (OS)1 and the top TV streaming
platform by hours streamed in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico2. Roku
has 70 million active accounts, and more than 85 billion hours were
streamed across its platform in 2022. The company recently topped
Morning Consult’s Fastest Growing Brand Among Gen-Z adults, and in
a recent survey, Cord Cutter News found that more than 70% of U.S.
cord-cutters use a Roku device.
In 2022, Roku focused on expanding features on its platform to
enhance the connected experience for customers and provide
additional value for advertisers. The company launched several new
devices, including the Roku Voice Remote Pro; upgraded its most
premium player, the Roku Ultra; and expanded its products with a
new line of smart home devices such as video doorbells, lights, and
plugs integrated into the Roku ecosystem. Recently, the company
announced it will launch Roku-branded TVs this spring to offer more
choice and innovation to both consumers and Roku TV partners.
Throughout 2022, Roku also updated its operating system (OS),
the only OS purpose-built for TV, with more personalization
features and enhancements across search, audio, and content
discovery, launching The Buzz, Sports, and What to Watch, which
provides tailored movie and TV recommendations on the Home Screen
Menu. The company also released a new feature for streamers, Photo
Streams, that allows customers to display and share photo albums
through Roku streaming devices.
Additionally, Roku unveiled Shoppable Ads, a new ad innovation
that makes shopping on TV streaming as easy as it is on social
media. Viewers simply press “OK” with their Roku remote on a
shoppable ad and proceed to check out with their shipping and
payment details pre-populated from Roku Pay, its proprietary
payments platform. Walmart was the exclusive retailer for the
launch, a first-of-its-kind partnership.
Finally, Roku grew its content offering with thousands of apps
and watching options for users, including content on The Roku
Channel, a top five app by reach and engagement on the Roku
platform in the U.S. in 2022. In November, Roku released its first
feature film, “WEIRD: The ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Story,” a biopic
starring Daniel Radcliffe. Throughout the year, The Roku Channel
added FAST channels from NBCUniversal and the National Hockey
League, as well as an exclusive AMC channel featuring its signature
drama “Mad Men.” This year, the company announced a deal with
Warner Bros. Discovery, launching new channels that will include
“Westworld” and “The Bachelor,” in addition to 2,000 hours of
