US Adults Spend More Time on Mobile than They Do Watching TV
For the first time ever, US consumers will spend more time using their mobile devices than watching TV, with smartphone use dominating that time spent.

Consumers’ use of smartphones will continue to make up the majority of their media consumption, but we predict that use will plateau by 2020, as consumers become increasingly uneasy about overuse of mobile devices.

The average US adult will spend 3 hours, 43 minutes (referenced as 3:43) on mobile devices in 2019, just above the 3:35 spent on TV. Of time spent on mobile, US consumers will spend 2:55 on smartphones, a 9-minute increase from last year. In 2018, mobile time spent was 3:35, with TV time spent at 3:44. ...

i don't use a cell phone why do that when i have a computer? my kids bought me one about 6 years ago and i ran it for 3 months and never bought more minutes, now its obsolete and worthless! i don't care to give money away to boost mobile and the phone manufacturers so ill probably never have a phone again, but im not certain as God can make me get one even if i don't want to
i probably watch maybe 10 hours of TV in a year as i found it slowly becoming abhorrent

Phone usage is certainly on a rampage...

Of course everyone commenting on this forum is just as guilty, just not to the same degree. As we all are using a phone or computer to post on here. And I doubt (myself included) that any of us specifically went to our device to post just on Sermon Audio...

It is a funny thing. Moving bits if light can so addicting..

I don't know why anyone would want to watch videos on phones when one has much larger screens available at home or on laptops.

"Phone Zombies" are what I call people walking around with their faces buried in the things, despite the hazard. They also do this in their idling parked cars, wasting gas for many minutes, even on pleasant days.

By contrast, I heard that frugal Chinese save by switching off and coasting their cars on downhills.

Today's generation spends more time on their mobiles than they do anything. I wonder if this will reverse procreation and progress??

New York Post had a story that said retirees spend 51 hours a week watching TV, and that was done some years ago when smartphone usage was starting to increase.
I think the daily 3 hrs number is inaccurate, since people are using smartphones while walking, driving, attending church, watching TV, eating in restaurants, and most other places. You could say they use them 12 hours a day.
I have seen another story that the increase in smartphone use has come at a cost of sleep time, and that has very bad consequences.

Though people often watch tv through digital device, phones, etc., and private videos via YouTube, Vimeo, etc, the large screen stereo all round tv in homes is still popular here in Britain.

Also, many people, men particularly, flock to the pub to watch live sporting events, while others go to betting shops (quite legal here in the UK), where they place their bets and watch matches, but particularly horse racing live in the shop!!

I think in Britain what puts some people off from tv is the exorbitant compulsory annual licence fee exacted through government for the BBC, our semi-public broadcasting service, and the rather expensive deals that many people have to make if they want the full freedom of cable tv. Even Internet tv, bbc iPlayer, and other tv replay services, are now subject by law to having to pay the licence fee, for the BBC, even if you don’t watch the BBC provrammes.

Some people do reluctantly cough up the licence fee on an instalment plan, and avoid further fees by using a Freeview cable style service, but through a special converter in their tv, and the normal aerial.

I have up this sort of thing a long time ago, and still have a rarely used tv monitor, linked up for mainly Christian dvds and an ancient, now obsolete vhs video tape machine, and main

I can’t see the TV being obsolete anytime soon, especially with the rise of steampunk stuff, and also the sports games, movie time, etc.

Plus the video game industry, in my opinion, will continue to blossom on a TV screen. In short, I don’t think TVs are going obsolete anytime soon.
