"Manufacturers are underselling the Internet features of connected TVs," says Ross Rubin of the NPD Group, who recently revealed the results of a study detailing the usage of internet connected sets.

According to the NPD survey, a whopping 57 percent of people are using the internet functionality of their connected TVs to access Netflix.  That's ten percent more than access YouTube, and YouTube is a free service.
