Frequency of streaming TV shows in the U.S. 2019-2020

According to a survey held in January 2020, 52 percent of responding U.S. adults said that they watched or streamed TV shows every day. This marks a jump of eight percent from those who said they watched TV shows every day in a survey held in the previous July. Whilst TV has always been a popular pastime, the growing number of streaming services allows viewers to enjoy content they want to see when they want to see it, and has led to a decline in traditional TV viewing among some audiences as they turn to video on demand platforms instead.
