Few Smartphone Users Watching Movies, TV Shows

I can’t say this is very surprising as the numbers are relatively low. After all, outside those of you who commute or travel frequently for work, when are you not in front of a laptop or iPad.

New comScore data about what users do with their smartphones notably glosses over the fact that just 9.3% of users watch TV or video no more than one-to-three times a month.

Buried among the data compiled from 30,000 smartphone users from May through July: 6.5% of users watch TV or video once a week and just 2.5% watch everyday.

    More to the point, who would WANT to?  We went from tiny TVs in our homes, to huge CRTs, to widescreen TVs and projectors, and now we’re going all the way to 4″ screens.  No thank you.  I guess this is for the younger crowd who don’t have their own places yet.  I sure as hell don’t have time to watch TV or movies on my phone.  Maybe I should try doing that while I’m driving, since I hear talking or texting is so dangerous?  Wink

        More T.M.I….

        In college (myself + 3 roommates w/ a single toilet…giving context) we smashed, literally pushed it into the drywall, an old 13″ TV in front of the toilet with an original NES and Mike Tyson’s Punch-out.  A complete waste of time and completely unrelated to this thread but Aaron’s comment reminded me.
