While GfK says that 51% of the US population watches streaming video weekly, it’s important to note that the survey was limited to 13-54-year-olds. According to the Census Bureau, there were almost 82 million Americans aged 55 and older as of July last year. Given the age trend in streaming video viewing, it’s likely that audiences in the 55+ segment would be smaller, dragging down the overall average.

Nevertheless, the data shows that on a directional basis, streaming video is becoming more mainstream. A variety of connected devices are contributing to the growth:

  • 9% of TV households are using streaming-ready 7G game systems weekly to stream;
  • 5% of TV households are using a streaming-capable HDTV to stream weekly;
  • 5% of consumers aged 13-54 are using a tablet to watching streaming video weekly; and
  • 4% of consumers are using a smartphone to do so.

Netflix Is Not A Channel? Vast Majority Stream to HDTV over PC, Tablet, or Smartphone

source: https://www.npdgroupblog.com/netflix-is-not-a-channel-2/

In our new Connected Intelligence report, Application & Convergence, we measure how consumers are using the various devices they own. In Q4 2012 we saw 40 percent of individuals with a TV connected to the Internet were watching Netflix. And, streaming video users are continuing to migrate from the computer. Twenty-one percent of connected TV owners said they migrated from using over-the-top (OTT) video services on the computer and now watch on the TV instead.

In fact, more than half of consumers age 18-24 that have a TV connected to the Internet watch Netflix on TV

Sony's Ultra High Definition TV will come with world's first 4K delivery system

If there’s $25,000 or so burning a hole in your pocket and room in your living room for Sony’s 84-inch XBR-84X900 Ultra HDTV, but you’re worried about a lack of 4K res content to play on it, allow us to put your mind at ease. Sony’s Ray Hartjen has picked up the blogging pen and revealed each of the supersized sets will ship with “the world’s first 4K Ultra HD delivery solution, complete with pre-loaded, native 4K entertainment.” There’s no specifics on what the pack-in content will be (or what form the “delivery system” will take), but he says it will include full length feature Hollywood productions exclusive to purchasers, probably courtesy of Sony Pictures. We’re told to expect more details after Turkey day, so stay tuned.

Keeping the ‘app’ out of Apple’s TV

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2011/12/04/switched-on-keeping-the-app-out-of-apples-tv/

Each week Ross Rubin contributes Switched On, a column about consumer technology.

Rumors continue to heat up that Apple will enter the television market next year, stepping up its Apple TV “hobby” into a greater revenue-generating vocation. The company would clearly like to repeat the kind of rousing success it has seen in smartphones. There, it entered a market at least as crowded and competitive as that for televisions whereas most of its Windows rivals have barely been able to eke out a few models with nominal share.

Indeed, the challenge is not as much about competition as commoditization. At first glance, this would be a curious time for Apple to enter the TV space. The HD and flat-panel transitions on which premium manufacturer brands and retailers once feasted has long passed. “Flat-panel TV” and “HDTV” are now just “TV.” And prices for smaller sets are settling into a range familiar to those who remember what they cost back in the heyday of CRTs.

What’s different, though, is that the state of the smart TV market looks strikingly like the smartphone market did before Apple’s entrance. The market essentially has “feature TVs” that present a few popular canned services (YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, etc.) and “smart TVs” that are a fractured mixture of homegrown offerings (from companies such as Panasonic, Samsung, LG and Toshiba) and an experience-challenged licensed OS (Android from Sony and Vizio).

The company has clung to the idea of TV as a passive experience.

Sports Fans Coalition intends to lobby against NFL blackouts

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/16/sports-fans-coalition-intends-to-lobby-against-nfl-blackouts/

We know how it is, you have a big HDTV and inexpensive adult beverages at home and you just don’t feel compelled to spend the bucks to go to the game in these tough economic times. We feel for you, but the NFL does not as your situation doesn’t exactly pay all those player’s salaries. Well, starting this Friday the Sports Fans Coalition, along with other organizations, plans to petition the FCC for change to the current blackout rule. The groups argue that since many of the stadiums are built with public funds, Joe Consumer has the right to watch those games at home. As is, we’re mostly just glad the old NFL blackout policy, prior to 1973 that made all home games unavailable to the home market, isn’t still in effect. Of course that doesn’t mean that we believe the current blackout policy actually helps sell those $100+ tickets and believe the NFL might realize more profits if it sought out more modern supplemental revenue strategies.
