With the advent of streaming entertainment over the Internet, many viewers turned from their TVs to their computers to take in favorite shows and movies. Though this blew open the doors to tons of content that was previously hard to find, the small flickering laptop screen didn’t really hold a candle to the television. Roku reversed this situation with the release of a device that used a home Internet connection to stream Netflix content to a TV. Since then, its set-top boxes and streaming sticks have expanded their reach to bring Hulu, YouTube, and thousands of other streaming channels to cord-cutters everywhere. Countless hours of sports, movies, TV, and music—much of it free—is now available to Roku owners without a cable subscription, and fans have responded, streaming more than 3 billion hours of content in 2014. Today Roku also works on Internet connection software inside the TV itself, building out smart TV capability for brands such as Sharp, Haier, and Insignia.
