Report: Google to debut new TV set-top box in race with Amazon and Apple

However, Google has been successful with Chromecast. At $35, the dongle is cheaper than a set-top box and lets users stream Internet video through phones, tablets and computers running Google’s Chrome browser.

Market research suggests it’s worth Google’s while to keep trying for success in the TV market. A market researcher with Parks Associates told CNET that, while TV sales are down, sales of devices that plug into televisions and play video and music are expected to jump to 330 million units by 2017, double the total from last year.
