US cable boxes hit all time high in sales in January and February, according to data from Next Big Futures.
The company’s data shows that US cable sales rose 12.7% to $1.5 billion in the first quarter of 2017, marking the largest annual gain since December of 2016.
That was up 13.4% year-over-year.
UK cable sales were down 6.6% to £847 million.
The biggest gainers were in the United Kingdom, which saw its cable box business grow 9.7%.
Sales in the UK accounted for 47.6 million homes in the quarter, according the company, and the UK is home to two thirds of all cable boxes sold worldwide.
The United States saw its box sales rise by just under 10%.
The cable box industry has seen significant growth in recent years, driven in part by a boom in streaming services.
The popularity of cable boxes and cord cutting has led to increased interest from businesses and consumers in using these products to stream media, as well as to build their own cable networks.
