Accelerating tablet adoption dramatically shifts TV viewing habits Posted: 22/11/2011
Accelerating tablet adoption dramatically shifts TV viewing habits
The trend of viewing live and on demand programming on devices such as smartphones and tablets is accelerating - with 76% of 18-44 year olds indicating that they are watching more TV on these devices than just one year ago, according to research by video service management specialists, QuickPlay Media.  The report, which captured a number of trends showing shifting TV viewing habits, found that 44% of mobile TV viewers also prefer to catch-up with sports, news, and shows like the X-Factor at times that suit them - rather than during the live broadcast. The results come on the back of explosive growth of tablet devices. Gartner estimates worldwide tablet sales to exceed 63 million units sold in 2011, a 261 percent increase over 2010 which illustrates the dramatic shift around how, when and where consumers are now watching live television and VOD content on their mobile devices.
