Apple TV Statistics: Did You Notice That Apple TV Sales Are Up 170 Percent?

Apple TV statistics show us that it is still being considered a ‘hobby’ by Apple. Sales are definitely picking up, but overall, they are still very small. Apple TV is definitely not in the same league as Steve’s Devices – we spotted this today:

“Sales of Apple TV have been picking up, but are still small. The company sold 1.3 million in its quarter ending June 30, up 170% from the previous year.

In a recent earnings call, Mr. Cook said the company believes the device “will lead us somewhere.” The box offers programming purchased from iTunes and some streaming apps like Netflix Inc. NFLX -0.09% But it doesn’t offer the conventional channel lineup available through cable and satellite operators, limiting its usefulness.”

How do we digest these Apple TV Statistics? That is simple: Apple most definitely has a real TV in the works. It wouldn’t have remained a hobby for so long if that was not the case.

We had spotted multiple stats on cable cutters – specifically, on Gen-Y cord cutters – we spotted this today:

““Young people who move to an apartment or get a house for the first time don’t subscribe to any MVPD (multichannel video programming distributor) and they just… get their network programming from Hulu and they get Netflix… As an industry where people pay between $70 and $92 a month, that’s a lot of money to a young person today who is getting their first job when they can go out and watch Hulu for free and Netflix for $7.99.
