Technology is revolutionising the way in which we watch television with the days of waiting for the next episode of a programme to be broadcast mostly behind us. On-demand shows from the likes of BBC iPlayer and Netflix are increasingly popular, with 75% of young adults aged 16–24 and 59% of over 65s using these services.* With so much content available online, consumers now have a huge amount of choice available to them and since the advent of the new generation 4K UHD TV, images can be transmitted with incredible clarity. Big budget series like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Peaky Blinders, The Crown, House of Cards, Plant Earth and Narcos leave everyone talking and it is easy to binge watch box sets when they are so readily available.
Despite the fact that viewing habits are rapidly changing, a television remains a central focal point in any home with 68% of adults in the UK agreeing that watching programmes/ films brings the family together. * In fact we are seeing a significant increase in screen size, with 55″ and 65″ 4K HDR and UHD TVs being popular choices amongst our customers as they look for a more cinematic experience. Although consumers also watch content on their phones or tablets, statistics show that we would still rather come together to enjoy a show on a big screen.
