Internet TV Users Favor Netflix Over YouTube

Nearly a quarter (21%) of all TVs shipped in 2010 had Internet connectivity and that is on track to grow to over 122 million in 2014, according to a new report from The NPD Group.

Growth of connected TV was fueled by the Japanese market in 2010 and driven by high levels of broadband access. Emerging markets will play a key role in the future growth of this segment, with Eastern Europe forecast to grow from 2.5 million connected TVs shipped in 2010 to over 10 million in 2014.
