Will Standalone Streaming Media Players Continue?

Providing further evidence that consumers are moving toward streaming content is a new study by In-Stat that finds shipments of streaming media players to reach 3.6 million worldwide in 2011. However, the firm notes that streaming appears to be following a direction whereby it is a function within a more common consumer electronics products versus being a central function of the device. In-Stat, thus, is quick to warn that the road ahead for standaone streaming players will be "bumpy." Consider devices like the Sony PlayStation 3, which can serve as a video game console, Blu-ray player, and streaming devices for services like Netflix. With the increasing availability of Internet-connected TV sets and hybrid set top boxes, this will also impact the long-term viability of the streaming media player market. Nevertheless, Apple TV, a product developed solely for streaming, remains the leading product on the market.
