Digital TV is overtaking PC for online video viewing in home

New research from U.S. company Parks Associates has shown that televisions are outpacing personal computers as the main platform for consuming internet video in the home.

In Q1, 2014 U.S. broadband households watched approximately three hours of video online per week on each platform (6 hours in total)—but online video consumed through a TV has increased from 2.3 hours per week, whilst online video viewing on a PC is heading in the opposite direction.

Director of Research for Parks Associates, Brett Sappington said “Ultimately, consumers can more easily access online video options on a television than ever before."
