Hey, Apple, Just Make a TV Already

According to Parks Associates, Apple TV made up just 13% of streaming players owned by U.S. households with broadband internet as of last fall. By comparison, Roku and Amazon Fire TV players have U.S. market share of 38% and 33%, respectively.

Meanwhile, Apple is missing a bigger opportunity in smart TVs, which in recent years have started to subsume the streaming player business. Parks Associates notes that 58% of U.S. broadband households now own a smart TV, while only 45% own an external streaming player. And in case you think people are ignoring their TVs’ smart features, you should know that more than 77% of homes have connected their TVs to the internet.

From the article "Hey, Apple, Just Make a TV Already" by Jared Newman.
