Abstimmungsergebnis: Extrem unheimlich
No lie, the speakers built into most TV kinda stink. Easy solution: upgrade the sound on your TV with a soundbar. Why not make it Roku's streambar or soundbar that can also stream in 4K your TV, movies, and news, as well as play music from Spotify or a Bluetooth connected device? The only reason we can see you might not want to do this is if you're worried about Roku snooping on every single thing you ever stream, watch, listen to, whether you do it it through the Roku or not, and then selling it to lord knows who. Yeah, you might not want that.

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?

Roku is the nosey, gossipy neighbor of connected devices. They track just about everything! And then they share that data with way too many people. According to Roku's privacy policy, they share your personal data with advertisers to show you targeted ads and create profiles about you over time and across different services and devices. Roku also gives advertisers detailed data about your interactions with advertisements, your demographic data, and audience segment. Roku shares viewing data with measurement providers who may target you with ads. Roku may share your personal information with third parties for their own marketing purposes. One of the researchers working on this guide said, "It had such a scary privacy policy, I didn't even connect it to my TV." Another researcher referred to Roku as a "privacy nightmare."

Roku is in the ad business, not the hardware business, says CEO
The Verge
Roku sells more dedicated streaming devices than perhaps any other company in the world. It’s been estimated that there are more Rokus in US households than there are Fire TVs, Chromecasts, or Apple TVs. (Amazon strongly disagrees, but has never shared any sales numbers.)

Roku leaves rivals in dust – claiming machine learning breakthrough
ReTHINK
