A Leichtman Research Group study points to the rapid adoption of internet-connected TVs in US households.
The consumer research firm reports that 65% of US homes have at least one internet-connected TV. That figure is up from 44% in 2013 and 24% in 2010.
Among connected homes, 74% have more than one internet TV connection — through video game systems, smart TVs, Blu-ray players or standalone devices such as Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV.
Among the approximately 1,200 adults surveyed, 70% of connected TV owners said streaming services like Netflix are easy to access.
Leichtman’s research also found more connected TV devices (2.1 per household) than pay-TV set-top boxes (1.8 per household).
“New forms of competition from Internet-delivered video via connected TVs, along with technological innovations in the pay-TV industry, are allowing consumers to choose more options for accessing and watching TV than they have ever had before,” said Bruce Leichtman, president and principal analyst for Leichtman.
