Anthony J.  Wood net worth and biography

Anthony Wood Biography and Net Worth

CEO of Roku

Anthony Wood is the founder and chairman of Roku, a TV-based digital media player company that popularized video streaming. 

Born in England and raised in the United States, Wood graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in electrical engineering. 

Wanting to improve upon the VHS tape method of recording his favorite TV show, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Wood invented the digital video recorder (DVR). In 1999, he marketed the product as ReplayTV, which he sold to consumer electronics company, SONICBlue, two years later for $42 million.  

Following the release of an ad-skipping version of ReplayTV, SONICBlue was sued by major advertising industry players, resulting in the company’s bankruptcy and pushing Wood to found Roku in 2002. 

In April 2007, Netflix brought Wood on as vice president to lead their streaming player development. After ten months, the company decided not to move forward with building its own hardware and instead invested $6 million in Wood's company. 

Wood guided Roku’s launch of their first set-top box in 2008, billed as the first product designed to stream Netflix to your TV. With a focus on keeping prices low, Roku gained a large market share in the digital media streaming industry: 41 percent of streaming media players sold in 2018. 

In 2014, following the entrances of competitors like Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Google Chromecast, Wood pushed Roku to partner with Chinese and Japanese smart-TV manufacturers to have Roku’s operating system built-in. 

Roku went public in September 2017 with a valuation of $1.3 billion. 

As streaming apps have become increasingly integrated with all forms of media technology, from smart TVs to gaming consoles, Wood is leading Roku’s pivot from low-margin hardware to software via advertising. In its fastest-growing segment, Roku is doubling down on advertising by measuring the reach and effectiveness of ads on streaming services. 

In October 2019, Roku continued its growth strategy with the acquisition of Boston video ad campaign company, dataxu, for $150 million.

Wood lives in Palo Alto, California with his wife and their three children.
