Synopsis: Survey respondents fell roughly in line with the national average for number of hours spent watching TV. Americans watched an average of more than five hours of live and time-shifted TV in first quarter of the year, according to Nielsen’s “Total Audience Report for Q1 2016.” (Here, we asked respondents to lump TV viewing across all devices, while the Nielsen report measures “time spent” per week using devices.)
Of the 49 people who commented, 36 said they watch TV content on TV, reflecting Nielsen’s findings that U.S. householders watched live and recorded TV on a TV set nearly 32 hour a week. By comparison, people watched video on a PC for one hour, 33 minutes a week; and on a smartphone, 23 minutes a week on average.
Of all respondents, 48 percent said they watched between two and five hours a day; 40 percent said two hours or less; and 12 percent said five hours or more.
TV for TV.
TV, over the air and satellite.
Roku OTT on full screen.
I prefer my 60-inch plasma TV. When I’m out of the house, I’m
usually doing something that precludes watching TV.
Large-screen TV: OTA, Netflix, HBO, no cable..
My TV, the one with only
two cables (power and antenna) that gives me video and audio with a simple
remote control. Now it I could get the TV manufacturer and the local TV
stations to cooperate to get rid of all of the technical problems with my so
called “free high-def.”
Late at night to catch up with local news.
TV, using cable set-top box.
HDTV. After all, I do work at a TV station. Now actually watch
is the real question.
Almost all DVR, very little live.
TV (then tablet).
Television set (4k OLED, 55-inch
with internet access); internet access for short-form content related to news
and web searches.
Mostly DVR’d HDTV. Two
hours on average at night is more than plenty when you can skip past auto and
big pharma commercials. However, I do tend to watch clips or content on YouTube
off and on throughout the day.
Though depends on the day.
If by TV you mean linear TV.
Tie iPhone 6 and Comcast HDTV.
Television. I’m on a PC several hours per day, but rarely
TV only. Other devices are
for reading, doing research.
Laptop or phone, but sometimes actual TV.
Typical living room/bedroom TV.
Laptop unless traveling. Then phone.
