“Roku delivered a strong second quarter, with record revenue growth that was driven by exceptional performance in platform monetization. Audiences, content, and advertisers continue their shift to TV streaming around the globe, and Roku is a key enabler of this long-term secular trend. We more than doubled monetized video ad impressions year-over-year, and leading media companies are increasingly turning to Roku’s tools to grow their DTC (direct to consumer) services. Looking ahead, our recent success at the Upfronts demonstrates the
accelerating shift of advertisers from traditional TV to TV streaming. We closed commitments with all seven major agency holding companies, doubling dollar commitments year-over-year. We believe that our leading technology, platform scale, and the value we provide content providers, advertisers, and consumers all position us well for long-term growth.”
