DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Barbara Kraus, Director of Research at Parks Associates, will be speaking in the panel "The Brains: Smart TV functionality brings new content to HD and UHD TVs alike" during CE Week on Tuesday, June 24, in New York City. According to new research from Parks Associates, smart TV adoption increased by 31% in one year so that now over one-third of U.S. broadband households have a smart TV.

Parks Associates analysts report that over 70% of smart TV owners have the device connected to the Internet. Also, nearly two-thirds of people shopping for a flat-panel TV this year plan to buy a smart TV. These trends show the smart TV has a significant role in the connected home and is a key device to extend new services and experiences to consumers.

The CE Week Conference brings together experts and analysts from across the CE and home entertainment industries to examine the status of various advanced technologies rolling out to consumers.
