➢ 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.

“It’s been a tough time in the media business as the linear business is declining and the streaming business is growing… Frankly, there’s been too much investment in streaming by the whole industry. Disney’s results were poor, and that’s one of the reasons [former Disney CEO Bob Chapek] is gone. The timing is interesting and I realize you’ve got to make your move in January if you want to get into this year’s proxy, so that’s why [Nelson Peltz] moved now, so quickly. But Bob Iger probably has done the best job of any media CEO for the last couple of decades… The Fox acquisition may have been too expensive, but if you look at the Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm acquisitions and you look at the profits that those acquisitions have done, I’m sure they made way more on those three acquisitions than they potentially will have lost on Fox.”
