Do yo know who makes Roku TVs?

Jump to solution

I'm tired of paying Verizon $180+ every month.

I can't decide what streaming system to get. I can't decide whether to get a TV with Roku or whatever included or get a streaming box.

Do you happen to know what company makes the Roku TVs?

Hi @cordcutternewbi,

Thank you for posting here in the Roku Community and we appreciate your interest with the Roku devices.

Roku® manufactures its own Roku-branded TVs and also partners with a variety of other TV manufacturers like TCL, Hisense, Onn, RCA, Sharp, etc who build Roku TV models with different screen sizes, price points, and picture resolutions. 

Each of these models is a standalone smart TV with a built-in TV display and Roku operating system that lets you stream content over the internet without needing to connect any additional devices.

A Roku player on the other hand, is an external device like a cable set-top box that must be connected to a TV with an HDMI® cable to let you watch content streamed over the internet. A Roku® Streaming Stick® 4K | Powerful & portable HD & 4K streaming stick | Roku is a type of Roku player that also connects to a TV, but it plugs directly into the HDMI port on a TV.

If you're looking to compare features between the latest Roku streaming devices, the following resources will help answer your questions. If you're unsure what type of TV you own, use the guidelines below to help determine if you have a Roku TV or a Roku-branded TV.

For future reference, learn more about the exciting features and specifications of our Roku TVs from our Roku Official website Roku TV – Learn about Smart TVs with Roku streaming built-in | Roku.


All the best,
John

I have been unable to find out who manufactures Roku branded televisions.  It is possible that Roku hired television design engineers and built a factory to make televisions, but it is much more likely Roku contracted with an existing manufacturer to manufacture them.  One mainboard they use appears to be used in Onn, Roku, Westinghouse, JVC branded televisions.  The JVC brandname is used by the Chinese television maker Shenzhen MTC.  So there is a good chance that is who actually makes (at least some of) Roku brand televisions.
