Feb. 21, 2012 - PRLog -- San Diego, CA, February 23, 2012:  According to recent research 53 % of internet capable TV sets do not even get connected to the internet. Even though the number of sets with this feature is constantly increasing, customers do not take advantage of it to lower the cost that they pay for content. Consumers still overwhelmingly feed video from set top boxes by the local cable company or satellite. These services cost significantly more than the streaming media content provided by for example Netflix for $8 a month.
Why do people pay for it if they do not want to use it.  
1.   The feature is not emphasized by retailers.
2.   Consumers are not used to the extended capabilities.
3.   This capability is not looked at when purchasing the product.
4.   User interface is not user friendly.
Is there a game changer that is coming? Will Apple take the stage once again in the TV arena just like in some other segments where they disrupted the technological landscape? Read more in the blog post:
