Internet Devices Underutilized In Living Room: Report

8/16/2011 11:30:23 AM Eastern
Santa Monica, Calif. - Although Internet-connected devices in the living room have proliferated to more than half of U.S. consumers, they remain underutilized for TV and movie entertainment.

That is according to Interpret, an entertainment, media and technology market research firm that recently released two reports: "The State of Internet-Connected Living Rooms" and "Streaming Music: Will It Replace the CD and MP3?"

In the "Living Rooms" report, according to Interpret's New Media Measure syndicated study, only 22 percent of those who own a gaming console connected to the Internet have used it to stream a movie or TV show, and among owners of set-top boxes such as Apple TV or Roku, that number is even lower (18 percent).

The "Streaming Music" report discusses the impact that streaming and the Cloud are having on the music industry and whether these services are making the most out of optimizing their business opportunities. New Media Measure indicates that streaming music only accounts for 16 percent of the time consumers listen to music, suggesting streaming and Cloud services need to demonstrate more value to convert listeners to paid subscribers or to benefit from advertising.
