Roku working on dedicated box for Sky’s Now TV

BSkyB is reportedly working with Roku to develop a set-top box to distribute its new online TV service.

Bloomberg has reported Roku CEO Anthony Wood as saying that the box will connect TV sets to Sky’s Now TV service. He said that the set-top box, which would be available next year, would not carry Roku branding. However, Roku will also add a Now TV application to its own boxes.

Roku received an investment of US$45 million (€37 million) in July from a group of investors that included BSkyB and News Corp in a deal that gave Sky the option to rebrand and distribute versions of Roku’s devices in the future.
