TV Slowly Dying?

Video continues to be a growing method for consumer consumption of information and entertainment.  According to an article in BusinessWeek this week:

“The average American (age 12 and up) with Internet access spends more than 6 hours a day watching videos, shows, news, and sports – or playing games – on screens of one sort or another…Solutions Research Group…predicts a rise to 8 hours a day in 2013.”

“…on average TV accounts for 4 of the current 6 viewing hours.  The other 2 hours involve the Web, DVDs, gaming consoles, and mobile devices.  (The ratio is roughly reversed for the 12-to-24-year-old set.)  By 2013, the group forecasts, Americans will spend an average three hours daily viewing or playing with PCs and mobile devices.”
