ABI called the viewing habits of US consumers baffling. ABI says, “Americans do a lot of time-shifting with PVRs, and a lot of gaming, and plenty of people have installed home theaters," reports ABI Research vice president Scan Schatt. "They are likely to consume a lot more video over the next several years.”
The survey found that 38% of survey respondents had home theater systems or game consoles attached to their TVs. The study showed that almost as many used DVRs while only a relative few used network media adapters or Slingbox devices. Over 25% of respondents chose their TV service based on price. Only 15-20% noted customer service and programming quality was a factor. The study also showed that 40% had HD TVs, but less than half were using HD programming packages.
