Hub Entertainment Research (via Advanced Television) conducted a survey of more than 5,204 Americans in February about the “connected home”.
American Home TV Equipment
We learn that 52% of respondents own a 4K UHD television, and that 67% have already watched Ultra HD content. Only 8% claim to have an 8K UHD TV, but this figure was only 1% last year, which is a good progression. 76% of American households have a Smart TV and 64% have used it this month (Editor's note: February, we remind you) to "stream" content. Of all TVs in the home, 57% are connected, up from 45% in 2020, a marked increase.
What about buying an 8K TV?
Respondents were also asked if they were planning to buy an 8K UHD TV in the next 12 months, and 14% said "definitely", significantly more than the 10% who gave the same answer Last year.
