Roku welcomes Sanyo as latest Roku TV brand

Roku has expanded its Roku TV licensing programme with Sanyo coming on board as a tenth manufacturer to use the Roku operating system to power its smart TVs.

Funai Corporation – the North American sales and marketing company for the Sanyo, Kodak and Magnavox brands – said it expects to ship its first Sanyo Roku TVs in Canada this quarter.

“The Roku operating system makes our smart TVs an attractive option for consumers, with simple navigation and search, an easy-to-use remote, thousands of streaming channels and regular software updates so we can offer a great TV experience to our customers,” said Peter Swinkels, general manager of product planning at Funai Electric.

Chas Smith, general manager of Roku TV and players, said: “In just four years we have grown the Roku TV licensing program significantly and have launched into other countries such as Canada. We’re thrilled to expand the Roku TV program with our tenth brand, Sanyo, through our work with Funai.”
