It's a battle of the video streams. With the new Apple TV just hitting stores, the tech giant continues to compete with Roku's similar device over who will dominate the streaming market.
"It's a pretty impressive evolutionary step for Apple TV," CNET Senior Editor Jeff Bakalar told CBS News about the latest version of Apple's streaming device.
With the its new TV, Apple is hoping to stand at the forefront of streaming services.
"We believe the future of television is apps," Apple CEO Tim Cook said when the upgraded TV was announced in September.


Clocking in at $149 for a 32 GB version and a $199 for a 64 GB version with a faster processor, the new Apple device is expensive, but Bakalar noted that customers have a lot of loyalty to the company's products.
"There are a lot of people who are invested financially and emotionally in Apple's ecosystem," Bakalar said. "That's really the trade-off. Do you want to leave your Apple ecosystem and how heavily invested you are in that to go for Roku? That's something you have to decide."

Roku has been a strong competitor in the streaming video market, with a lower price and more video content apps than Apple. The latest Roku device sells for $129.99, works with 4K Ultra HD TVs, and has a simple interface with a comprehensive search function.
