According to a new study, HDTVs are becoming the leading way to consume Netflix Watch Instantly videos.

The NPD Group recently conducted a study of how people are consuming Netflix. At 25 million users in the U.S., it’s about time how we see people are using it, and HDTVs are winning by a landslide. Of course, this matched up with another recent study that showed OTT (over the top) video viewing is about the only thing people do with their HDTVs app wise, but this really backs it up.
