Many households cutting cable, but not their favorite TV shows

The rise of mobile devices such as tablets is accelerating this trend. According to the research firm Parks Associates, Americans now spend 1.7 hours a week watching video on smartphones and 8.2 hours on computers; meanwhile, traditional TV viewing is declining, to 18.9 hours a week, compared with 20.4 hours a year ago.

“Because consumers are able to get content when they want it, how they want it, they are filling time on other platforms,” said Brett Sappington, a digital media analyst at Parks.
