“Streaming of entertainment content continues to grow – two-thirds of U.S. broadband households currently connect a CE device to their TV sets – meaning that consumers have a wide variety of viewing options beyond traditional broadcast and pay-TV,” said Barbara Kraus, Director of Research for Parks Associates. “Roku is the most-used streaming media player in the U.S..
