The report--from the Leichtman Research Group--said that 49% of all US households have at least one television set connected to the Internet via a video game system, Blu-ray player, smart TV set, and/or stand-alone device. That's up from only 38% in 2012. Plus, that report found that 47% of households are subscribed to either Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu Plus, although that number is heavily tilted towards Netflix subscribers. Leichtman Research Group said it surveyed 1,211 households nationwide for the study.
