Streaming platform Roku announced that the number of global active accounts exceeded 70 million at the start of January 2023, up from 60.1 million active accounts in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2022.
Globally, streaming hours were 23.9 billion in Q4 and 87.4 billion for full-year 2022, a 19% increase year-over-year.
Anthony Wood, Roku founder and CEO, said: “As consumers continue the shift to TV streaming, we’re excited that a growing number of people are taking the journey with Roku.”
Roku’s active account milestone was reached as the company announced its first-ever Roku-branded TV on 4 January 2023. The launch of Roku Select and Roku Plus Series TVs are the first ever to be both designed and made by Roku. The TVs will be available in the United States in spring 2023.
The number of active accounts and streaming hours is based on preliminary estimated data. The company will report final operating metrics and financial results for the fourth quarter and the full year of 2022 in February 2023.
