Penetration of operator-delivered multiscreen services in the U.S. and Canada has grown substantially, with nearly 90% of North American pay-TV subscribers now having access to some TV Everywhere offering, according to new research from Parks Associates.
Today’s consumer can access content through an assortment of devices, including computers, tablets, smartphones, game consoles, digital media receivers, Blu-ray players, and smart TVs.
