5 Reasons Why a New Apple TV Will Launch This Fall (AAPL)

Apple slashed the Apple TV price to $69 in an attempt to retain market share, but the ancient Apple TV hardware was hardly competitive.

Parks Associates released a report showing that in 2014, Apple TV had dropped to fourth place at 17% of streaming devices sold in the U.S., behind Roku, Google and Amazon.

That same Parks Associates report points out that streaming media device ownership in U.S. households with a broadband connection is in the range of 20%.

In other words, the market for these devices is far from saturated. Apple is unlikely to ignore the opportunity, especially when it also has a good shot at convincing those among the 20% who already own an Apple TV to upgrade to a next-generation device.
