In year one of our survey, respondents reported enjoying watching live television in the comfort of their homes. Ten years later respondents enjoy binge watching—sometimes five shows in one sitting—and can watch content on-the-go via a mobile device or in the comfort of the their homes from a flat panel TV.
Other highlights from this year’s survey include:
- 70 percent of US consumers binge watch television
- Nearly half of US consumers subscribe to streaming media services—highest in survey history
- Online reviews and social media eclipse TV advertising for many millennials
- Two-thirds of millennials value interactions with friends on social media as much as time spent in-person
