In May, we learned that Netflix's console traffic—just movies streaming to consoles now—accounted for 20 percent of Internet bandwidth usage in the United States. We have more data backing up the phenomenon: Half of all the service's users watch movies on a games console, says Nielsen.
What's more, 42 percent of Netflix users watch directly from their computers, says Nielsen (leaving ... eight percent who watch exclusively by disc?) Contrast that with Hulu, which offers television content, where more users watch its offerings directly from a computer than by any other means (including consoles).
