Amazon Fire TV outsells Apple TV

Amazon's Fire TV set-top box outsold Apple TV in the last year, according to figures from Parks Associates.

In the US, Roku, Google, Amazon and Apple account for a whopping 86 per cent of the entire streaming market.

Roku is top, with a 34 per cent market share, while Google's Chromecast notched up 24 per cent.

Apple was third, but has been overtaken by the Amazon Fire TV set-top box.

However, it's hardly a fair comparison. Apple TV hasn't been refreshed since 2013, which is an age in terms of technology.

Apple is also rumoured to launch a new model next month. It's been whispered about for some time, which will have put people off buying the existing model.
