Roku, the little black box that connects the Internet to television sets, has sold over 500,000 units, and its owners use it over two hours a sitting, Roku spokesman Brian Jaquet told Beet.TV in this video interview.
One big development on the horizon is a Netflix menu for Roku users. As of now, Netflix users need to create their video queue on a computer, which is then displayed on the Roku-connected television. Beginning in June, subscribers can select their choices on the television set.
We caught up with Brian at the Streaming Media East Conference last week in New York.
