Cependant, les 56% enregistrés au Royaume-Uni est le plus faible des quatre pays. Il est prévu que le chiffre augmentera à mesure que des TV compatibles Wi-Fi seront mises à disposition. A l'inverse on pourrait faire valoir que le pourcentage diminue lorsque les 'early adopters' sont sortis de l'équation.

Those of us with access to a connected TV experience – whether on a smart TV, games console, laptop, tablet or set-top box – will all have our favourite bugbears about the connected user experience: the number of clicks it takes to call up a particular piece of on-demand content, over-complex remotes that don’t match what’s on the EPG, screens that are difficult to navigate, etc. etc. But is it possible to create a standardised set of objective, quantifiable tests with which to assess and compare the user-friendliness of all these different screens? Well, farncombe thinks it is.
