Roku’s Share of Streaming Market Rising, Says Parks Report

As streaming becomes more popular as a way to consume TV programming, Roku is increasing the number of homes in which its devices are used, according to a new report from Parks Associates.

In the first quarter, Roku increased it leading share of the streaming media player market in the U.S. to 37% from 30% a year ago.

The gain puts Roku further ahead of competitors including Amazon, Google and Apple.

"Roku emerged early as a U.S. market leader for streaming media players, and the company has held firmly to that position," said Glenn Hower, senior analyst at Parks Associates. "Higher-priced devices, such as the Apple TV, have not been able to keep up with low-priced and readily available Roku devices, which can be found at Walmart for as low as $29.99."
