Roku pioneered streaming for the TV, and we aspire to power every TV in the world. Roku has nearly 21 million monthly active accounts as of the end of Q1 2018. We developed a streaming platform that delivers a best-in-class user experience. At the heart of the Roku platform is our proprietary operating system, the Roku OS, which we built from the ground up. We believe that all television will be streamed, and that all TVs and set-top-boxes will be powered by software-based operating systems that provide a dramatically better user experience than has existed historically for the TV. We generate revenue from enabling content consumption, promotion, and advertising on the platform; licensing to TV OEMs and service TV operators; and selling Roku® streaming players in retail. Roku employs top talent with advertising, AI, billing, data science, machine learning, media, mobile, marketing, TV and software expertise. The company is headquartered in Los Gatos, CA and was founded by Anthony Wood, inventor of the DVR. We have R&D offices in Silicon Valley; Austin; Cambridge, England; and Tilst, Denmark; along with media and advertising teams, and operations in New York; Los Angeles; and Shanghai.
