2014 Screen Futures - 40 percent of TVs Will Have Net Connections

In five years, almost 40% of television produced for the U.S. market will have at least one TV set in the home with Internet connections and services. Media research publisher Futurescape says this will amount to 43 million U.S. television homes out of 115.9 million overall U.S. TV homes. Other research suggests that 57 million U.S. TV homes will be viewing -- at some time -- regular full-length TV programs from online sources on their TV sets. U.S. numbers register at a slower pace than global TV trends, where it is expected that 54% of all flat-panel TV sets that will be shipped in 2014 -- 148.3 million -- will have Internet-connected TV services. Aggressive TV maker Samsung says 70% of all its TV sets will be Internet-connected in 2014. Right now, the TV set maker says 17% of its production is Internet-connected TVs.
