Americans Express Preference for Alternatives to Live Television

Survey finds two-thirds of 18-29 year olds went online for television content last year

Utica, NY - Forty-two percent of Americans went online last year to access a television program directly from a network, a new Zogby Interactive survey finds. The survey of American adults finds similar numbers using On Demand (46%) or DVRs (47%) to access television content. Approximately one-third of Americans used a 3rd party internet site, like Hulu, including more than two-thirds of 18 to 29 year olds.
