NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 6, 2011) - Parks Associates reports one-tenth of U.S. broadband households intend to purchase a Smart TV in the second half of 2011. This number is up from 6% in the first half of the year.

Tricia Parks, CEO of Parks Associates, stated, "Advertising campaigns from manufacturers such as Sony (NYSE: SNE), Samsung and VIZIO have boosted consumer awareness and interest, making connectivity a must-have feature for new consumer electronic products."
