Italians watch most traditional broadcast TV - study

Friday 4 September 2015 | 11:41 CET | News
Italians spend around four hours and 20 minutes a day watching TV, more than any other European country, according to new research from IHS Technology. The study examined TV viewing times across the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. It found that Italians were the only Europeans to increase their average daily consumption of broadcast TV in 2014. Following a steep fall in 2007, traditional TV viewing grew by an average of four minutes and 42 seconds per person per day between 2008 and 2014 to reach the figure of four hours and 20 minutes, far above the UK figure of around three hours.
