Third of online Mexicans no longer watch regular TV

Wednesday 6 July 2016 | 14:33 CET | News
One in three Mexican internet users no longer watch regular TV, preferring to view audiovisual content via digital platforms, reports El Financiero, citing an IMS study. The average user spends nearly three times as much time on OTT platforms (14 hours) than in front of a TV set (5 hours), according to the study. Other findings include the fact that 84 percent of the 2,100 respondents choose to watch audiovisual content on their mobile devices compared to the 64 percent who prefer their TV.
