Chromecast and Roku are crushing Apple TV

It’s been over two and a half years since Apple TV was updated, and while Apple’s been happy resting on its laurels, its biggest competitors are passing it by.

Google’s Chromecast is now more popular than Apple TV, reports Parks Associates, which says streaming media players become more popular than ever in the first three quarters of 2014, as 10 percent of U.S. households bought at least one new streaming device.

The news of Apple TV’s slumping appeal comes amid years of rumors that a big update is in the works, but Apple hasn’t been able to launch it yet because of negotiation problems with content providers. As Apple’s been satisfied with releasing small software updates to its little TV box, Google and Amazon have launched competitors that offer different content and cheaper prices.
