By 2015, almost every home with broadband Internet access will have an Internet-connected consumer electronics device other than a computer, according to a new study by the In-Stat Group. That will have major implications on the digital entertainment industry, as streaming content form the Internet trumps today’s download-and-use model.

From the release:
-Worldwide shipments of web-enabled stationary CE devices will grow more than seven-fold from their 2009 levels to over 230 million by 2013.

-There will be over one-half billion web-enabled CE devices in operation worldwide by 2013.

-In 2009, there were five broadband households worldwide for every web-enabled CE device. By 2013, this ratio will be 2:1.

In-Stat’s consumer survey indicates that over half of US consumers with network-connected Blu-ray DVD players/recorders use Wi-Fi, while 30% use Ethernet.
