The rise of Chromecast and the decline of Apple TV in one chart

It’s been two and a half years since Apple refreshed its set-top box, first released in 2007. In that time, Apple TV has languished while Roku continued expanding its content library and new players entered this space.

In fact, recent market share data from Parks Associates shows Google’s $35 streaming dongle, Chromecast (at 20%), is now second to Roku (29%), and ahead of Apple TV (17%) in the US. Not bad for something that only started shipping last summer.

New streaming devices, including Amazon’s Fire TV, also are starting to eating away at the lead held by Roku, which commanded 46% of the US market in 2013. (That year, Apple TV had a 26% market share.)
