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.

Qué podría pasar si algo falla

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."

How to Turn Off Smart TV Snooping Features
James K. Willcox
Your TV may know—and share—a lot of information about you. That’s what CR has found repeatedly in recent years, including during a 2018 analysis of privacy and security in smart TVs from LG, Samsung, Sony, TCL (which uses the Roku TV smart TV platform), and Vizio.
Samsung and Roku Smart TVs Vulnerable to Hacking, Consumer Reports Finds
Consumer Reports
Consumer Reports has found that millions of smart TVs can be controlled by hackers exploiting easy-to-find security flaws. The problems affect Samsung televisions, along with models made by TCL and other brands that use the Roku TV smart-TV platform, as well as streaming devices such as the Roku Ultra.
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.) But here’s something that might surprise you: the money that Roku makes from its hardware lineup isn’t enough to sustain the company’s business.
Roku leaves rivals in dust – claiming machine learning breakthrough
Tommy Flanagan
Roku blew away its numbers in style as the US streaming company surpassed 30 million active users in Q2 2019 – comprehensively extending its native dominance in the connected TV space. But while Roku’s second quarter results are a milestone for the company, they also signify significant tailwinds in a broader field – advertising.
