The cable box might solve the Internet of Thing’s biggest problem

Meanwhile, don’t expect anything resembling an IoT hub from Roku and Apple — two of the biggest players in the streaming-box game — any time soon. A Roku spokesperson told Engadget, “Roku’s core focus is delivering the best streaming-TV experience. Currently there are no plans to serve as a central hub for the connected home.” And while people seem to expect the Apple TV to become a connected HomeKit hub, in reality, it’s just an access point to Apple’s secure iCloud service. – Roberto Baldwin, Engadget
