➢ Viewers age 35+ say they spend more time watching TV than any other kind of screen-based entertainment, accounting for 43% of their total screen time.

➢ The opposite is true for those age 13-24. They estimate 17% of their screen time is spent on TV shows, and they spend more than twice that on gaming and non-premium video combined.

➢ Viewers age 35+ spend 1/3 of their screen time watching content through a pay TV set top box. Those age 13-24 watch 30% of their content on their smartphone and only 8% on a cable box.
