One-third of Hong Kong households watch TV via the Internet; U.S. not even close


This adorable graph shows worldwide IPTV penetration. More specifically, it shows the percentage of households per country that watch TV via the Internet. Hong Kong leads the line, followed by Iceland and Estonia. Not a single Western Hemisphere country is listed, which must thrill the likes of NBC (Hulu) and ABC.

Certainly, I watch all my TV shows (“Lost,” “the Office,” etc.) thanks to the Internet, but I don’t necessarily watch them on my computer monitor. One day I may watch the shows on my TV, while another I may load them up on my PSP for when I have to go all the way down to Brooklyn to visit Biggs.

Interesting numbers, nonetheless.
