Connected TVs to outsell games consoles for first time this year

A new report from Informa Telecoms & Media (publisher of IPTV News) reveals that worldwide sales of connected TVs will surpass games consoles for the first time in 2011. While Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony will sell 37mn consoles this year, consumers will buy 52mn connected TVs from the likes of Samsung, Sony and LG. "The market for connected devices - connected TVs, connected Blu-ray players, games consoles, media-streaming devices and hybrid set-top boxes - is continuing to grow globally, as consumers seek to access services such as Netflix and iPlayer via their televisions," said Andrew Ladbrook, analyst at Informa Telecoms & Media. "In 2016, 1.8bn in-home video devices - including tablets - will be sold, an increase of almost 800% from today. And by this time, 70% of all in-home video devices sold will be able to connect to the Internet.
