Consumers now Watch Online Video on TV

Just imagine what it would be like to watch online video content on your television. Well, a segment of mainstream American consumers has already moved beyond their imagination.

The under-35 adult population in the U.S. has already adopted Web-to-TV video capability, according to the latest study by In-Stat.

Over 40 percent of young adult U.S. households view Internet video on the TV at least once per month. On the upside, revenue from Web-to-TV streaming services will grow to $2.9 billion in 2013.

"Once Web-to-TV video becomes simple and convenient, mass consumer adoption will follow quite rapidly," says Keith Nissen, In-Stat analyst. "Our primary research shows that users want a variety of their consumer devices to enable a web-to-TV video experience."

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- Within five years, the number of U.S. broadband households viewing Web-to-TV content will grow to 24 million.

- Already, 29 percent of U.S. 25 to 34 year olds with game consoles use the devices to watch streaming video off the Internet.

- In five years, there will be 7.4 million U.S. broadband households that use media center PCs for streaming Web-to-TV content.

- TV networks and pay TV operators currently view online TV as additive to pay TV services, but Web-to-TV will ultimately force a complete restructuring of today’s video services.

- Video content will be optimized for broadcast or Web-to-TV based on content type.

One of the most significant trends I've observed is the surging demand for Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) driven by the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Large Language Models (LLMs). According to the latest market study by Gartner, more than 30 percent of the increase in API demand will come from AI and LLM-powered tools by 2026. This illustrates the transformative impact these technologies are poised to have on leaders who innovate. The Gartner study paints a clear picture of the forces at play. Technology Service Providers (TSPs) are leading the charge in adopting Generative AI (GenAI), with 83 percent of the 459 TSPs surveyed reporting that they have already deployed or are piloting these capabilities within their organizations.
