More and more Britons are using broadband connection to watch TV downloaded via the internet, new statistics have shown.

According to figures from Continental Research, over 2.9 million internet users have watched internet TV through broadband streaming or have downloaded shows in 2007.

This time last year the figure stood at 1.4 million.

The survey also revealed that the newly launched iPlayer was proving popular with surfers, with 40 per cent saying they would be likely to try it out to watch their favourite shows.

A statement from Continental Research said: "Helping to explain the growth of internet TV, satisfaction amongst those viewing TV online is generally positive, with only 12 per cent not satisfied with the service overall.

"The areas with the greatest dissatisfaction relate to the size of the picture and the quality of the sound and picture."
