How do you Watch Netflix?

Assuming you live in North America, of course.

Earlier this week I wrote on Allot's recent mobile traffic report (here) indicating that Netflix was not there, while Sandvine lists it as the most popular video application.

A recent survey from Nielsen (see "What Netflix and Hulu Users are Watching… and How" - here) shows us why - it is all about fixed connection. Netflix is consumed at home, and while some connections maybe mobile-based (see the UK example here), it is safe to assume it is mostly a cable and DSL play (see also "Netflix: US Cable Outperforms DSL; Charter Leads" - here). 

Nevertheless, Netflix enhanced recently its support for Android devices (here).
