Apple's Services Push Gives It a Fresh Incentive to Launch a New Apple TV

Apple TV's share of the streaming player market is still believed to be well below that of Roku (ROKU - Get Report) and Amazon's. A survey done by research firm Parks Associates indicated that Apple TV accounted for 13% of the installed base of streaming players owned by U.S. households with broadband in Q1 2019; Roku devices and Amazon's Fire TV devices were estimated, respectively, to account for 39% and 30%. Last year, eMarketer forecast that 25.1 million Americans would use an Apple TV in 2018, 70.1 million would use Roku and 55.7 million would utilize Fire TV devices.
