With so many different ways to watch streaming TV, it is always of interest to see which device sells the most. And new research from Parks Associates shows that both Roku and the Chromecast stick were top internet TV devices.
Although as the Chromecast stick only launched in mid-2013, it would have to be held up as even more popular than the Roku devices. The data showed that poor Apple trailed behind the big two, selling around two million Apple TV’s in the US last year.
When we venture away from American shores the Apple TV device is faring much better. Around the rest of the world, over 20 million Apple TV’s have been sold since it’s launch in 2007. This compares to Roku’s 8 million total sales.
However whereas the Roku is available in only four countries (US, Canada, UK, Ireland), the Apple TV iis available pretty much everywhere just like the Google Chromecast.
