Roku has it Advertise It was the best-selling smart TV operating system in the United States, last year. With 38% market share in the US and 31% market share in Canada.
This comes from data collected from January 5 to December 26, 2020. It appears that Samsung and its Tizen OS have dropped from the first place.
The success of Roku TVs is likely thanks to its extensive app catalog and Roku TV availability. TCL quickly made a name for itself as one of the top Roku TV makers. It offers many different televisions, all of which run on the Roku platform.
Expect more third-party Roku speakers in 2021
Alongside this announcement, Roku has announced partners for the “Roku TV Ready” program. This will allow wireless speakers to work with televisions. Bring your Roku to your TV without purchasing an HDMI dongle. Currently, only Roku is making these sound bars, but that will change soon.
The Roku TV Speakers connect to the TV via WiFi. You won’t have any latency issues though, since it is connected across devices. Which ensures good A / V synchronization. Basically, the way it works is, Roku will choose what needs to be inside its speakers for it to work, then leave other options to its partners. It includes the design of case, motors, amplifiers, etc.
Element is joining the Roku TV Ready program, and it will release a 2.0 speaker lineup and 2.1 subwoofer later this year.
The Roku TV Ready software will be rolled out in other countries and made available to other partners in the future.
This will allow you to have great speakers for your TV, and you don’t have to worry about getting a Roku dongle for your TV to get some TV wit. Or having to buy a new TV in the first place.
