Average U.S. Family Has 10 Netflix-enabled Devices

Netflix has made a lot of changes but still continues to be popular. Now, according to an analyst, it may be more popular than ever with households having more access than ever before.

It's a move to make Netflix a company that is focused on streaming first and physical discs second. According to information presented in an article at Home Media Magazine, that might not be a bad idea.

Netflix recently increased the number of devices a subscriber can stream to. The old limit was five devices. The new limit extends that to fifty devices, a substantial upgrade. This increase comes at a time when Netflix streaming is instantly available on more than 250 different devices. These include iPads, iPhones, iPods, video game consoles, Blu-ray players, and HDTVs. With all those available devices, analyst Dan Rayburn believes the average U.S. family has 10 Netflix-enabled devices.

Netflix has completely dominated its space in the media marketplace, getting apps on devices made by Haier, Memorex, Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Toshiba, and Best Buy's in-house brand Dynex.

However, Netflix faces competition from Amazon Video On Demand and Hulu Plus and will continue to do so as those companies have also gotten apps installed on many products, but Netflix is clearly way out ahead in this race.
