Households with Netflix now surpass those with a DVR

New consumer research from Leichtman Research Group, Inc. (LRG) found that 82% of US TV households have a DVR, get Netflix, or use on-Demand (VOD) from a cable or Telco provider – with 30% of households using two of the services, and 14% using all three.

The survey also found that 54% of adults report that they have Netflix in their household, while 53% have a DVR. This is the first time that households with Netflix (including those sharing passwords) have surpassed the level of those with a DVR. In 2011, 44% of TV households had a DVR and 28% had Netflix.
