Aereo Goes Live on Google Chromecast

Parks Associates (News - Alert), in its “360 View: Entertainment Services in US Broadband Households” report, found that a full 81percent of U.S. broadband households still choose the TV set for the majority of their video consumption, while 60 percent watch content on a computer. Thirty-one percent said they watch video on a smartphone, and 28 percent watch on a tablet. The PC was the only platform to show any significant decline in video viewing in the past year.

The firm found that in the first quarter of 2014, U.S. broadband households watched roughly three hours of online video per week on each platform — however, the amount of online video consumed on a TV is increasing, up from 2.3 hours per week in the first quarter of 2013. Meanwhile, online video viewing on a PC is on a steady decline.

"The amount of all video consumed on PCs has declined, dropping from over eight hours per week in 2013 to 6.2 hours per week now," said Brett Sappington, director of research for Parks Associates. "Ultimately, consumers can more easily access online video options on a television than ever before."
