I’m curious to know what everyone is watching and how they’re watching it. Are you watching network television, standard cable/satellite channels, premium channels, DVDs? Are you actually sitting down and watching shows on TV when they’re on, or are you using a DVR? Are you streaming them from services like Hulu?
I’ve found recently that I rarely watch anything when it’s actually aired. Heroes is about the only appointment television in my life at this point. Occasionally, I will sit down and watch something just because it’s on, but I usually do about seven or eight other things at the same time.
I have tried using streaming services online, but my Internet connection doesn’t really lend itself to that. I do record a lot on my DVR (for the rare occasion that I actually get to use the TV that’s hooked to my DVR).
So, I’m curious – are people still watching TV when it airs? I’m curious what the impact has been over the last year or two on traditional television advertising.
