Nearly 20% of U.S. broadband households have a PC-to-TV connection and the vast majority is using a DIY solution (like game consoles) to stream online video. Parks Associates forecasts Web-connected consumer electronics will grow from 57 million devices in 2009 to more than 200 million by 2013, with Web-connected TV shipments exceeding 80 million units by 2013.

For advanced advertising, U.S. revenues for online video advertising will exceed $1.3 billion in 2010. Almost 50% of heads-of-household aged 18-34 indifferent to targeted advertising, while 42% aged 25-54 and 25% aged 55 or older are similarly neutral.
