A new survey confirms that a huge number of consumers in the U.S. are now binge-watching television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deloitte’s 10th edition of its annual Digital Democracy Survey concluded that the number has climbed to 70%.
Within that group, viewers are watching an average of five episodes at a time, the survey found. The study also determined that 31% of viewers binge-watch TV on a weekly basis.
“The survey also revealed that 46 percent of Americans subscribe to streaming video services; within that near 50 percent, millennials aged 14-25 were spending more time streaming video content than watching live TV,” THR adds.
