In other words, they’re getting rid of the cable box — you know, the one you have to take time off of work to get installed. Now customers will be able to access their channels on their smart TVs, and mobile or streaming devices.

The best yet: SHI posts record revenue in 2015

Earnings ReleaseWe’re beginning to sound like a broken record, but that’s because we are … breaking records! 2015 was SHI’s best year yet with $6.8 billion in revenue — our strongest financial performance in a calendar year ever. The year was marked by robust and well-balanced growth from its four key sales divisions.

Overall, SHI increased revenue 14 percent year-over-year, in great part because of strengthened ties with our legacy and new partners, including Dell, HP Inc. and HP Enterprise (after splitting in 2015), VMware, Symantec, Lenovo, Adobe, and Apple. In 2015, Cisco became the fastest-growing partner among our top 10. We also saw 12 percent growth in Microsoft sales last year, and remain the company’s largest North American and global channel partner.

For CEO Thai Lee’s analysis of SHI’s 2015 results, as well as more facts, figures, and announcements read our official press release.

Sincere thanks to all of SHI’s customers, partners, and employees who made this possible!
