TV viewing habits

A study

People prefer to watch live sports and news broadcasts

In general people are growing increasingly accustomed to watching films, TV series and programmes whenever it suits them. Internet and streaming services have completely changed the way people watch television. We are becoming less dependent 

on TV channel programming and are free to decide for themselves when they watch a TV series or programme. But they still prefer to watch sports and news programmes live.

A majority of people prefer to watch TV in the evening. Sometimes, a television will be turned on in the morning to catch the news, but most TV is watched in the evening. And many people also like to eat while watching their favourite programmes and it's quite common to have dinner on a tray in front of the TV, or to turn the TV towards the dinner table. But the TV usually gets switched off when children are at the table.
