Smart set-top boxes and dongles are taking the market by storm

The smart set-top box and dongle market is expected to pass 18 million units in 2013 - higher than originally forecasted due to the arrival of Google’s Chromecast device. Overall the market is expected to grow with a 10.8% CAGR (2013 to 2018) with less saturated and developing (from connected and OTT perspective) markets like Asia-Pacific and Latin America helping drive this growth.

Is Amazon really selling Chromecasts for $11?

If you count the promise of a 3 month subscription to Netflix then, maybe. The buzz on Chromecast is strong. At $11 it is pointless not to buy one or put your order in right now. Somewhere, at some cable company, an executive is falling and no one is there to hear him crash.
