Half Of All Smart TVs Aren't Connected To The Net

You mean to tell me that half the people that buy smart TVs don't use them the way they were intended? Pfft. Next thing you are going to tell me is that most people watch SD content on their HDTVs and 3D still sucks.

Internet-enabled televisions have become the next big thing. LG, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and Sharp, among others, offer TV sets with apps and Wi-Fi connectivity. Just because someone has an Internet TV, however, doesn’t mean he or she it using it. "People are buying connected TVs, but they are not all using them," said Norm Bogen, vice president for digital entertainment at research firm NPD In-Stat.
