Roku Streaming Hours Surged 80% in April, Hits Nearly 40 Million Accounts in Q1

The company said it ended Q1 with 39.8 million active accounts, a net increase of about 2.9 million from the prior quarter (when it added a record 4.6 million accounts) and up 37% year over year. Streaming hours in Q1 totaled 13.2 billion, a 49% year-over-year increase — a smaller year-to-year increase than the 68% jump Roku reported in Q4 and a sequential decline from 16.3 billion hours for the last three months of 2019. – Todd Spangler, Variety »
