.....Roku....followed by Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV.....so Apple TV is #4 [ number 4 / a.ka. FOURTH ].....



Roku Leads U.S. Connected-TV Market, Apple TV Expected to Lag Rivals (Study)

....Roku is currently the No. 1 connected-TV device brand in the U.S., topping Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV in terms of total users, according to a new study from research firm eMarketer.

In 2017, 38.9 million Americans will use a Roku at least once per month, up 19% over last year, eMarketer estimates. Chromecast comes in second with 36.9 million users, followed by Amazon Fire TV with 35.8 million.

Apple TV comes in a distant fourth: The tech giant’s internet set-top device will have 21.3 million users. Over the next few years, Apple TV will continue to lag further behind its three rivals, eMarketer projects.

One big roadblock for Apple TV is its premium pricing. The fourth-generation Apple TV devices currently start at $150, whereas Google, Amazon and Roku each sell streaming sticks priced below $40.

Roku, on the other hand, is the only one of the four manufacturers in the segment that does not have an affiliated content service. “Roku has used its neutrality to strike deals with a wide range of partners, including smart TV makers, [over-the-top] service providers and social media companies,” said Paul Verna, eMarketer’s principal video analyst.

Roku in 2017 will capture 23% of the total U.S. connected-TV user population, followed by 22% for Chromecast, 21.3% for Amazon Fire TV and 12.7% for Apple TV. (The research firm noted that there is overlap in market penetration, as some consumers and households use more than one streaming device.)

By 2021, Roku will have added another 30 million monthly users, to continue to lead the field with a total U.S. user base of 69 million, per eMarketer’s forecast. Google Chromecast will hit 64.6 million and Amazon Fire TV will reach 62.6 million. Over that same period, Apple TV will add less than 4 million U.S. users, to reach 25.2 million by 2021, eMarketer predicts..............



I help myself......in a royal way........?!

I like Newt's "lame" puns. It's one of the unique things that makes this a cool place to hang out.

oh, and BTW, to contribute to the thread, I have an Amazon Fire. I bought it several years ago because my WDTV wouldn't work with Mavericks. Most of my media is NOT in "Apple friendly" format, so an Apple TV was not even considered.

AppleTV leads the market in my house at least. With Hulu, Netflix, and the Amazon prime app supposedly on the way that will bring it all together.

Also, while Newt's puns are mostly groan-worthy at best, I have found a few to be real gems recently.

Hmmm, it says right in the subject line: "in the U.S., the #1 TV connected device is...."

Dunno about you, but I was smart enough to infer the actual topic from that "cryptic" title. If you don't like reading Newt's posts, just don't click on them.

I'm surprised at the Chromecast. I literally know of no one who uses them in my circles. I have one, and it's on the shelf.

We have Roku and Apple TV - we are going back to ATV now that everything we use is on ATV now, and we have our iTunes media center library too.
