Roku IPO a Success, Despite Gaining Little Revenue From YouTube or Netflix

Amazon, for example, is able to sell its own TV streaming products as well as market and promote those products more prominently on its official website. But user trends favor the company’s services. About 80 percent of millennials say they watch or have access to streaming services, so that’s good news for the company.

“Over the past two-and-a-half years, Roku has expanded their product lines, evolved their platform business with smart-TV makers, and continued to build out its advertising business,” Brett Sappington, director of research at consulting firm Parks Associates, told the LA Times. “A platform-based approach and their advertising business will be keys to their future revenues and success.”
