It’s pretty clear now—Americans love the Internet of Things (IoT). Connected devices are finding their way into more aspects of our daily lives, and that has a big impact on the digital landscape. In fact, according to Parks Associates, 71 percent of U.S. broadband households own a connected entertainment device. Combine that with the fact that streaming video made up 76 percent of all consumer internet traffic in 2017, and it’s clear how large of an impact IoT already has on the internet ecosystem. And it’s only going to grow, and quickly.
“It is not surprising that the Supreme Court declined to hear this case dealing with the Wheeler FCC’s 2015 Order. Once the current FCC repealed the 2015 Order, almost all parties – including NCTA – agreed that the case was moot. Today’s decision is not an indication of the Court’s views on the merits but simply reflects the fact that there was nothing left for the Court to rule on.”

Comcast said it has implemented some new Super Bowl LII features and enhancements to its X1 platform as the Philadelphia Eagles prepare to take on the NFL’s reigning champions, the New England Patriots, this Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. X1, for example, has added a series of voice commands tied to Super Bowl LII, enabling users to pull up an on-demand destination tied to the matchup by uttering “Super Bowl” or “The Big Game” into the X1 voice remote.
