Comcast’s Decision To Add Netflix To Its X1 Cable Boxes Proves Who Cable’s Real Enemy Is (And It Isn’t Netflix)

Research firm Parks Associates estimates that 64 percent of U.S. broadband households subscribe to streaming video service but that only 36 percent of U.S. broadband households are using streaming players. That spread is partly attributable to people using gaming consoles, Blu-ray players or other devices, but it also includes people who use streaming services on their portable devices but haven’t streamed content to their living room TVs yet. There’s tremendous room for growth as devices continue to get faster, smaller and cheaper. Also, nearly all of the major TV manufacturers are now selling internet-ready TVs that work streaming services even without the need for a TV-connected device.
