45% of European broadband households own a smart TV, according to new research from Parks Associates.

According to the study, the highest percentage of households is in Germany, where over 50% of broadband households have this Internet-connected CE device.

“Europe has served as an early market for new online video services,” comments Brett Sappington, Director, Research, Parks Associates. “As the wave of OTT video breaks across European markets, new opportunities for partnerships are opening up among OTT services, CE manufacturers, and pay-TV providers. At CONNECTIONS Europe, we will explore the unique value of the user interface, the role of devices such as smart TVs and streaming media devices, and future opportunities that will shape the progression of OTT video services.”

The research firm will address the changing CE business models and opportunities for OTT video services in the EU connected home at the tenth-annual CONNECTIONS Europe – IoT: Connected Entertainment and the Smart Home, 10-11 November, at the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam.
