TV, Web Video Viewing Grows

By Sergio Published on .

The first of Nielsen Co.’s new “three-screen” reports shows that American TV viewing continues to grow, even as Internet use does, too, the New York Times reports. In May, Americans spent on average 127 hours watching TV, compared to 121 hours a year ago; Internet use grew to 26 hours, up from 24 hours a year ago. The study reported an average of 2 hours and 19 minutes of online video viewing for the month; two-thirds of the Internet users reported watching some online video in May. Among children ages 2-11, online video accounted for one-third of their Internet usage.
