Amazon’s Fire TV overtook the Apple TV in US sales during 2014

A refresh of the Apple TV is definitely coming at the right time. According to a new report from Parks Associates, Amazon’s Fire TV outsold Apple’s streaming video device in the United States in 2014.

Roku continues to lead the pack with a 34 percent market share. Google nabbed 23 percent of sales. Amazon overtook Apple for third place.

The report said that 20 percent of U.S. households with broadband own some type of streaming media player while 8 percent use a streaming stick like Google’s Chromecast.

Interestingly, the report did note Apple TV actually led the Fire TV in usage.
