While Apple continues to say that Apple TV is just a hobby, consumers seems to be making it the most popular streaming device out there.
According to Frost & Sullivan, in 2012 Apple TV commanded a 56.1% of the dedicated streaming devices. Note this excludes devices like XBox 360 and PS3.
Interestingly, Frost and Sullivan analyst Dan Rayburn attributes the popularity of the Apple TV to the desire of consumers to stream content to their HDTV via AirPlay.
I own an Apple TV and I have used AirPlay with it, but I rarely use my Apple TV. I get all of my content from WMC and now have close to 14TB of recorded movies from premium channels. Of course, I never watch that content in my home theater because the picture quality is so bad. That content is only played on one of the various flat panels around the house.
Does anyone own an Apple TV? If so, what is your common scenario?
