Canadians prefer online to TV-even to watch TV

Canadians spend more time online than watching TV on their television sets. The kicker is they're still watching TV, they're just doing so on their computers as shows migrate onto the Internet, according to a survey conducted by the Ipsos Reid polling company.

Canadians reportedly now spend more than 18 hours a week online and 16.9 hours watching television. Last year Internet usage was reported at 14.9 hours per week and television was 15.8. and the rest of the time? The report said that reading newspapers and magazines and listening to the radio have all remained constant.
