Default Roku rubbishes Apple TV

Telly streaming outfit Roku has been telling the world+dog that he is not at all worried about the fruity cargo cult Apple entering his market.

Founder and Chief Executive Anthony Wood dismissed the Apple competition saying that Jobsí Mob will not make any money.

Wood said that Apple TV is essentially an accessory for the iPad and they will lose money, which is unusual for Apple. Speaking at the Recode conference he pondered: "If you're losing money, why would you want to sell more?"

Roku said that the big technology companies making forays into streaming boxes helps Roku to grow. The day Apple launched its $99 box, Roku sales doubled, he noted.

This is not the first time that Wood has claimed that big technology companies moving into the market has helped his outfit grow.
