For most people, the bridge between the Internet and their television set is a videogame device, accord to a study by NPD DisplaySearch and reported on Monday by Home Media magazine. The study, conducted in the U.S., Japan, China, France, Germany, Italy, and the U.K., indicated that 19.3 percent of homes use videogame consoles to connect to the Web, while dedicated settop boxes such as those from Roku and Apple, represented 17.1 percent of connection devices and Blu-ray Disc players 16.3 percent. Only 10 percent of users connect to the Internet via smart TVs, i.e. those that have built-in connection capability. However, Riddhi Patel, research director at NPD DisplaySearch, said, As consumers become more comfortable using the connectivity features of smart TVs, and as the navigation and search capabilities on those devices become more intuitive and user friendly, we can expect to see more consumers accessing the Internet directly from smart TVs. Overall, the study concluded, 27 percent of high-definition TV sets are now connected to the Internet.
