Time spent with digital vs. traditional media in the U.S. 2011-2022

The average daily time spent with digital media is expected to increase from 470 minutes (seven hours and 50 minutes) in 2020 to just under eight hours in 2022. Higher consumption for 2020 was partially attributed to the coronavirus outbreak, with daily consumption of traditional media such as television, radio, newspapers, and magazines also recorded for that year.
