Consumers Want Internet Connected TV’s

Posted: 12th Jul, 2007 By: MarkJ
The latest analysis from iSuppli has revealed that nearly two-thirds of those surveyed would like to see their TV's connected to the Internet:

"The awareness of, and demand for, media home networking is growing rapidly among consumers," said Steve Rago, principal analyst for networking/optical communications at iSuppli.

ISuppli's first-quarter 2007 consumer-demand survey found that 61 per cent of respondents 'agreed' or 'strongly agreed' that they wanted the ability to network the internet to their televisions. Male respondents showed the stronger interest, with 71 per cent indicating that they 'agreed' or 'strongly agreed'.

Wi-Fi is expected to become the most common network physical interface for such products by 2011, followed by Cat 5, powerline and coax.

The VNUNet item points out that hardware manufacturers have been busy developing and releasing similar products to fit in with demand. Still, we can't help but wonder whether this says more for the adoption of existing TV methods than it does for IPTV solutions.
