Wordology, Roku

Roku is the company which supplies TVs with its own operating system and a number of devices to hook into other TVs for the purpose of bypassing the cable companies and providing streaming TV shows and movies. It has 52 million such devices in the market. Amazon has 30% of the streaming stick market and Roku 37%. In addition, one third of all branded smart TVs use the Roku operating system.

The Roku name comes from the Japanese word 六 (roku) meaning "six" and was named so because it was the sixth company that Anthony Wood, founder and CEO started.
