Roku CEO makes fun of Apple TV calling it an iPad accessory

There are no shortage of set top boxes on the market today. Some of the most popular come from Roku. About a year ago, Roku launched the Roku 3 set top box and it is one of the most popular devices the company sells. Apple is also in the market with a product called the Apple TV that has been called a hobby for the company.

Wood also said that after Apple cut the price of the Apple TV to $99 from its original $249, sales of Roku devices doubled. Analysts are backing up some of Wood's claims. Parks Associates says that the Roku line is more popular than Apple TV. Tim Cook said during a shareholder meeting this year that the Apple TV set top box has made $1 billion. If the Roku line is more popular than the Apple TV, that should mean things are going pretty well at Roku.
