Third Of Britons Don’t Watch Live TV

Third Of Britons Don’t Watch Live TV, Thirty-six per cent of Britons have admitted that they no longer watch live TV, preferring to either access content via catch-up sites or through personal video recorders, such as Sky+ or Virgin Media.

The new figure has emerged on the same day that Xbox 360 owners will be able to access the BBC iPlayer for the first time through the Microsoft owned console. Additionally Xbox 360 users, which have the Kinect motion-controller, will be able to control the iPlayer using hand gestures and voice commands.

Nearly two thousand Britons, aged 18 and over, were polled by discounts site, My Voucher Codes, to find out how prevalent time-shifted and on-demand viewing was throughout the UK.

Respondents were initially asked ‘Do you have a television?’ to which 98 per cent said ‘yes’. Of the two per cent that didn’t, when asked why not, the majority said that there was ‘no point’ because they could watch everything that they wanted to on their computer.

Those polled were then asked ‘Do you tend to watch programmes when they first air on the television?’ to which 36 per cent replied ‘no’. Those who said they did not watch live streaming television were asked to explain why not, to which 52 per cent said that they ‘didn’t have time’
