Consumers want TV and Videos Online
eMarketer (a firm that publishes market research, statistics, and objective analysis on Internet Marketing) estimates that in 2011, 69.4 million adults will watch TV shows at least once a month through some type of Internet connection. This means that their favorite TV shows may be watched on a TV set, computer screen or mobile device, but that the video content will be accessed through an Internet connection. eMarketer also expects that by 2015, nearly 100 million adults, or 48% of all adult Internet users, will do the same.
