A British survey reveals that young people spend over 27 hours a week online. This figure has trebled in 10 years. A communications group conducted the study on thousands of 16- to 24-year-olds. It was part of a media use and attitudes report. While most online content is accessed on computers, the proportion of access via mobile devices is quickly catching up. Two thirds of adults now regularly use mobile devices. Online content has also changed in the past decade. People spend a lot more time watching videos, playing games, messaging and checking social media.

An industry expert explained why people are spending more time online. He said: "New technologies are opening up a myriad of other possibilities for young people. It's not just watching content….Inevitably, as the younger generation gets older and they set up their own home, TV viewing consumption will be affected." Over a quarter of young people watch TV online instead of on televisions. The expert added: "A 40-inch television screen offers quality you can't get from a tablet or smartphone, so televisions are never going to become unimportant."
