Trend: Online video eroding traditional TV viewing

A full 43 percent of Britons who watch video on the Internet or on a mobile device at least once a week, said they watched less TV the old fashioned way as a result, according to a recent survey from ICM commissioned by the BBC. What's more is that some 75 percent of those surveyed claim to watch video content while online or on their mobile more than they did a year ago. Only nine percent of the U.K. population watches TV on these non-traditional formats "regularly" while an additional 13 percent watches "occasionally," and a still further 10 percent expects to start in the coming year. That's an odd sort, isn't it? "I feel like, yes, no I fully expect to start watching online video some day soon."
