Study: UK SVoD subs up 50%

UK adults sought solace in screens and streaming in 2020, spending a third of their waking hours watching TV and online video content, according to broadcast regulator Ofcom’s annual study of the nation’s media habits.

With people across the UK under some form of lockdown restrictions for most of last year, more than 2,000 hours of it were spent watching TV and online video content. That’s a daily average of five hours and 40 minutes – 47 minutes more than in 2019.
