The number of TV sets connected to the Internet will reach 551 million by 2016 up from 124 million toward the end of 2010, a new research report said.

The report from Digital TV Research which covered 40 countries also said stated that this translates to 20% of global TV sets by 2016, up from only 6% at end-2010.

Despite all of this rapid growth, only 8.9% of global TV sets will be connected to the Internet by 2016. However, this is up from a mere 1.4% at end-2010. Proportions will vary considerably from one country to the next, with South Korea the market leader in 2016 (boasting 15.0% penetration).
