Amazon rumors show ad-supported video picking up steam

Roku is still ahead of Amazon Fire TV in the U.S. streaming player market, according to May 2018 figures from Parks Associates. And Roku is taking advantage of that through the launch of its own ad-supported Roku Channel. So far, it’s been having a positive effect.

Roku’s second-quarter platform revenue grew 96% year-over-year, with advertising revenue representing the largest driver. The company said ARPU in the second quarter increased 48% year-over-year to a record $16.60, driven by growth in video advertising.
