According to a study, we're watching more TV on a computer than we do on a TV!
Here's what the source says:
"That is according to a just-released consumer research study from PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers). The study found that across all age groups, respondents watched 12.4 hours of TV shows/videos and movies online, while only 8.9 hours of that content on network TV and basic and pay cable."
So, how are people watching things?
The smallest way is on mobile phones and platforms, the largest being the actual computers.
Even more interesting is to look at the figures for how people are obtaining movie content (legally, of course):
When asked about the ways they obtain movie content, only 12.9% cited purchasing via VOD from their cable company, which put that ninth on the list behind streaming from Hulu for free (30.7%), renting from an actual brick and mortar store (23.3%), or borrowing one from a friend or relative (19.8%). The two top answers were renting an actual copy from a Netflix (42.6%) and renting an online copy (31.7%).
Netflix is pretty rad, we do have to say, but it's also kinda staggering to see it there at 42.6%! Times really are changing, LOLz!
So, how do U watch TV and movies??
