Why Roku App Development?

FX Digital has proven experience delivering high-quality Roku apps.

First released in 2008, Roku is an OTT solution. OTT or Over the Top refers to any streaming service that offers media to viewers via an internet connection, as opposed to traditional cable, broadcast or satellite TV services. Roku consists of two major products:

Roku Streaming Players (set-top boxes or HDMI sticks that deliver OTT content)

Roku OS (the Roku Operating System which is licensed both to service operators such as Sky, and TV manufacturers such as Philips)

Roku allows users to watch free and paid-for video content on TV using an internet connection. Roku’s Streaming Players and OS are becoming increasingly popular, particularly in the US and building a Roku app will allow you to deliver content across both products.
