OTT Video Fast Becoming Mainstream in the US with Majority Opting to Watch on TV, says Parks Associates

Over 50% of U.S. broadband households now watch Internet video on a television screen, according to a new connected entertainment research deliverables by market research firm, Parks Associates.

The IoT research firm examines this shift in video consumption habits of consumers, including usage of OTT services and the impact on the business of broadcast, pay TV, and online television.

“For years, the television has been the stronghold for the traditional TV industry,” said Brett Sappington, Senior Director of Research, Parks Associates. “Today, more televisions are connected to the Internet than ever, either directly or through connected devices like game consoles or streaming media players, such as Roku or Apple TV. The fact that one-half of broadband households watch Internet video on a television shows that we are well past a tipping point. The market has fundamentally changed.”
