SAN JOSE, Calif. — GlobalLogic Inc., a Hitachi Group Company and leader in Digital Engineering, announced that as part of its development partnership with Roku, to date, it has developed 150+ channels on the Roku platform.

Specifically, the Lab offers deep expertise working with Roku’s BrightScript framework, templated and customized screen designs, Roku Pay feature, Roku Advertising Framework (RAF), and rigorous certification requirements.
