Televisions with web connections are becoming top sellers in 2010. In the USA, every fourth new TV set sold in January had Internet access, whether this be via the model itself or via additional devices connected to it such as Blu-ray players, set top boxes or consoles. This is according to calculations by market research company iSupply based on a recent survey. More and more web-enabled models are also being sold in Europe.

In Germany, around one fifth of the models sold so fat in 2010 has an integrated Internet connection. The leader amongst these models is Philips, which also has an online platform for its devices in the form of Net TV. Services such as YouTube, eBay, but also video-on-demand services from Bild or the ARD Tagesschau can thus be called up directly via the television. In the meantime, all large manufacturers have jumped on the bandwagon and plan to equip at least some of the models on sale with web connections.

Although buyers currently do not now precisely how they can benefit from the web connection, at the same time Internet ability is seen as a criterion if one wishes to be equipped for the coming years. At the end of 2012, around half of all TV sets, Blu-ray players and set top boxes will be hybrid and therefore Internet-enabled. (Pressetext.de)
