SAN FRANCISCO -- Online video fans in the United States prefer big screen televisions to computers when it comes to viewing, according to a report released Tuesday by NPD Group.
The spread of Internet-connected televisions, gaming consoles with online entertainment offerings, and streaming services were among factors apparently powering the trend.
Internet video rental service Netflix was the dominant application for watching streamed content on televisions, according to NPD.
“The growth in connected TVs is another sign that online video is maturing,” said NPD senior vice president of industry analysis Russ Crupnick.
