Comcast's (NASDAQ: CMCSA) CEO Brian Roberts doesn't feel the need to seek a merger but is scoping options including a tie-up with ViacomCBS (NASDAQ: VIAC) or an acquisition of Roku (NASDAQ: ROKU), according to a report from Dow Jones.

On the distribution side, Roberts is aiming to make Comcast a rival to Roku and Amazon in delivering streaming apps. Comcast is working with Walmart and Hisense to develop smart TVs that could be in stores later this year.
