According to the Connected Intelligent Networked Home Entertainment Report, the total number of homes with Internet TV devices (such as smart TVs, video game terminals, streaming media players, and Blu-ray players) has increased to 46 million, an increase of 4 million households over the second quarter of 2014 .

In the second quarter of 2015, 45% of televisions sold in the United States all supported App applications. This figure was 34% last year. In the second quarter of 2013, this proportion was only 24%. As more and more App-enabled TVs enter the home, the number of users connecting these devices to the Internet is increasing. In the second quarter alone, more than two-thirds of televisions with networking capabilities were connected to the Internet, up from 61% in 2014 and 45% two years ago.
In the second quarter of 2015, Netflix remained the most popular online video service used by Internet TV households, followed by YouTube, Amazon Prime/Instant Video, Hulu, and HBO GO/NOW. Compared with the second quarter of 2014, more Internet TV users stated that they used each of the above devices. HBO achieved OTT signal coverage through its GO and NOW platforms, making it the first TV network company with the top five ratings, replacing Crackle.
