Roku CEO discusses state of Internet video, TV

[How big do you think cord cutting will become?] The coolest thing about streaming is that it gives customers lots of choices. If someone just wants to watch movies on Netflix, they have that option now. There has been an explosion in the types of content you can get through streaming. If they want to have the best cable experience ever, including HBO Go and ESPN Watch, then they get cable service, too. Where it will end up? I am not sure. I do believe people are watching more TV than ever and they have options. You don’t just have to watch what’s on pay TV or what’s on your DVR. The majority of our customers do have a pay-TV subscription, but a pretty good chunk doesn’t. More than 60 percent have pay-TV. About 35 percent don’t and they mostly just stream video. – Anthony Wood,Roku via Associated Press http://ift.tt/1y8E32S
