    Notes: The number of TV sets connected to the internet will almost triple between year-end and 2020 to reach almost 965 million, according to a Digital TV Research forecast that covers 51 countries. The forecast notes a shift in the methods by which TV sets will be connected: while gaming consoles represented 51% of the total in 2010, by 2020 they will only represent about one-fifth of connections. The number of smart TVs, meanwhile, is expected to triple between year-end (124.4 million) and 2020 (346.3 million) and be the primary connected device, at 36% share of the total.
