Connected TVs Gaining Interest

Last year, the number of U.S. households using Web-connected game consoles rose by 64% from 2008, while the number of households connecting a PC to a TV increased by 36%, according to a report released Tuesday by Parks Associates.

"Many households are working with devices they already have to get the connected-TV experience, which shows strong future demand for connected TVs, Web-enabled Blu-ray players, and networked digital media players such as Apple TV and Roku," Parks analyst Kurt Scherf said in a statement.

Parks Associates is not the only analyst firm to see signs of a growing interest among consumers for Internet-connected TV. According to iSuppli, more than a quarter of all televisions sold in January in the United States were connected to the Internet in the buyers' homes.
