Roku is the most popular Connected TV streaming device and it isn’t ceding any ground to its competitors. A new study from Parks Associates shows Roku market share growing and solidifying its lead over Apple, Google and Amazon.
Roku Market Share Is Still Growing
According to a Q1 2017 industry report from market intelligence firm Parks Associates, Roku devices accounted for 37% of all U.S. streaming devices. That’s up 7% from Q1 2016 when Roku was at 30%. Second place goes to Amazon Fire TV at (24%) which is up from 16% last year; Google Chromecast is at third with 18%; and Apple TV sits at 15%, which is actually lower than last year. Parks Associates attributes the drop to Apple TV’s high price point. You can read the full report at ParksAssociates.com.
