We are surrounded by media and devices of all kinds. You may think our smartphones are perhaps the most used devices by people of every age. But that is not true, as television is still the most used medium of entertainment and information for American adults.
But these results only include adults that are aged 50 and above. For those between the ages of 50 and 64, the television watching hours are six, while for those aged 65 and above, the watching hours are seven hours or even more. The statistics make sense if we put social media platforms such a Youtube or OTT platforms in the scene.
At home entertainment, subscription services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime are the main sources of entertainment for the younger generation. Therefore, we need to take into consideration the generation gap to fully understand television consumption. The statistics in the infographic below will present a clear picture of the television scene among various age groups.
