These decreases were seen on both broadcast and cable networks as well as on English and Spanish language channels. Some of these decreases may be explained by the use of DVRs and VOD, and some are likely due to the increasing amounts of time people are spending online.
A 2011 Yahoo! and Carat Interactive study found that 13 to 24 year-olds spent 16.7 hours per week online compared to 13.6 watching television. Much of this change may be explained not just by DVR and online usage, but also by the advances in technology and availability of online video content that let us watch our television programs anytime and almost anywhere.
