I'd love to see a breakdown of where ROKU's revenue comes from. Users don't pay...except for their premium content, which has to be minuscule. Not sure why content providers like Netflix or HBO would pay...Roku benefits from having their products available as much or more than they do. Who's paying Roku all these hundreds of millions of dollars a year? Advertisers? To show a little add on the home screen before the user clicks on Netflix or HBO's app? How much can they charge for that?

I just don't understand how they make money. Or what exactly they're selling. That's why I haven't been able to buy ROKU.
