Game consoles more popular streaming devices than dedicated boxes in U.S.

75 percent of U.S. homes that are connected to broadband internet use game consoles to stream non-game content each week, according to a new research report from analyst firm Parks Associates. 

28 percent of broadband-connected homes use consoles as their primary streaming device; Only 12 percent of broadband-equipped homes use a dedicated streaming box such as Roku or Apple TV.

"Gaming consoles are the most frequently used connected CE device because of their high adoption rates," Barbara Kraus, director of research at Parks, said in a statement.
