"As consumers connect TVs to the Internet, they are not only using streaming services such as Netflix, they also switch from linear and on-demand TV programming to TV network apps such as HBO Go or WatchESPN," noted John Buffone, NPD analyst, said in a press statement.

 

Video game consoles and Blu-ray players are the top methods U.S. consumers use to enjoy Internet-based content in the living room - but devices such as the Google Chromecast will continue to shake things up in the market.

 

There is a fierce competition among manufacturers and content producers, as more consumers enjoy the wider selection of TV shows, movies, and other Internet-streaming content in the living room.
