They are a really good device.. http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Google-Chromecast-the-Most-Popular-Streaming-Device-in-2015-136464 Google Chromecast was the most popular streaming video device sold last year, according to a new report by Strategy Analytics. According to the firm, Chromecast nabbed a 35% market share of the 42 million streaming devices shipped last year, in large part thanks to the low price tag and portability of the device. Globally, the report notes that 220 million streaming devices were sold in 2015, 84 million in the fourth quarter alone. In terms of total streaming devices shipped all time Apple still leads the industry at 37 million Apple TV set tops sold, though Chromecast is closing the gap at 27 million since its introduction in 2013. Compare that to 20 million Roku streaming set tops sold so far, and 10 million Amazon Fire TVs and Fire TV sticks. According to the report, most households continue to use a variety of different devices to get their streaming video fix. "Our research shows that US broadband homes own an average of 2.3 such devices giving them multiple means by which to stream video and audio content to the TV," says Strategy Analytics analyst Chirag Upadhyay. "While some consumers will have a favoured method, we find that most households are switching between different devices depending on the user and type of content being consumed."
