Every household on the planet will possess five connected, media-enabled devices by 2019, according to new analysis from Merrick Kingston, principal analyst from IHS Technology. […] Device proliferation doesn’t take place in a vacuum, it’s a process that’s co-determined with the availability and distribution of media. In many regards, Netflix has become a microcosm for this process. In the US, across its own subscription base, Netflix now oversees an addressable market of nearly 300m devices, which accounts for 31% of the country’s total connected installed base. – Broadband TV News
