By 2014 there will be over 200 million web-enabled wireline consumer electronic (CE) devices in operation in the U.S. according to In-Stat, and when PCs and mobile devices are factored in, the average U.S. will own 5-10 web-enabled devices.
More than 53 million U.S. broadband households currently view TV programs over the Internet. 85% of these users already view online TV content on multiple devices, including PCs, TVs, and mobile handsets.
“Today, content is consumed in a myriad of ways over a plethora of devices,” says Keith Nissen, Principal Analyst. “The relationship between the user, the content they view, and the device they watch it on, has become complex. Traditional viewing habits no longer apply and, as a result, a new and amorphous set of rules have taken over.”
