Roku and Apple dominated the TV streaming market last year, but Google’s Chromecast is now ahead of Apple to become a front-runner.
Why? Well let’s talk price. Both devices can do roughly the same thing. Both stream Netflix , both stream Youtube, and both plug into your HDMI port.
Where it differs is the cost. The Chromecast can be purchased during this holiday season for around $20 , the Apple TV is just under $100
If you have 5 Standard Flat Panel TV’s in the house. It’s $100 to turn all your dumb TV’s to smart TV’s taking the Google Route or $500 dollars (roughly the cost of a decent TV today) to do it the Apple Route.
To be honest, no further explanation is needed.
