With one quarter of Americans stating they choose to stream their TV programming over cable, or other available options (antenna, DVD/Bluray, etc), the T-commerce revolution seems to be in full swing, especially with so many choices and options for consumers to send TV and movie content to their big screens. It would be a mistake to not have these choices to consume media on a TV set. With smart TVs and streaming media devices in high demand, and availability, many of us have several streaming options on our TVs. How many of you have a smart TV, a smart Blurry player, a Roku or Apple TV and an Xbox One all hooked into one TV?
It’s no wonder that the new infographic below, displaying results from FatWallet’s annual TV Buyers survey by TNS (see full results, and 2014 results) reveals nearly one quarter (24%) now stream the majority of their TV content (43% of those under age 30). Of those that said they would buy a new TV in 2015 (26%), price has the biggest influence over TV purchases (45%) while 53% to spend more than $500+ and 28% will spend $700+ (up 18% and 17% over 2014, it respectively). They also say they’re most likely to make a new TV purchase during Black Friday, followed by Super Bowl sales, (Note: Super Bowl ranked #1 time to buy a TV in 2014).
