About 56 percent of all U.S. homes have at least one TV set connected to the Internet via a gaming console, a Blu-ray player, a smart TV or through a stand-alone player such as a Chromecast adapter, Roku, Apple TV, or Amazon Fire TV device, Leichtman Research Group found in a new survey.

That's up from 44 percent in 2013, and 24 percent in 2010, LRG said, adding that that 27 percent of all U.S. homes now have a TV connected via one device, and 29 percent are now connected through multiple devices, up from 17 percent in 2013.

In terms of usage, LRG found that 29 percent of adults watch Internet-delivered video via a connected TV at least weekly, compared to 17 percent in 2013, and 5 percent in 2010. Among Netflix streaming video users, 85% said that they watch Netflix on a TV set - a slightly higher level than in any previous year, LRG said.
