DVD has had its day: streaming devices rule supreme

According to market intel firm Parks Associates, 64 per cent of households in the UK with a broadband connection have at least one internet-connected entertainment device hooked up to their telly. Not surprising, given how cheap it is to jump on the streaming bandwagon these days.

Parks’ findings help to explain the overwhelming success of services like Spotify, which boasts over 20 million paying customers globally and Netflix, which entertains over three million UK subscribers.

The firm’s research also shone a light on European users’ opinions of developing technology and found that a quarter of German, Spanish and UK households find smart home appliances “very appealing” – even if they might be earwigging our most intimate secrets.
