Young people are deserting the living room television. Ofcom’s annual report has revealed that across all age groups Britons watched an average of 11 minutes less television in 2013 than the previous year. It was the first decline across the board since 2010 and so would not itself have induced panic among broadcasters. Viewing in general is resilient. Television consumption by 16 to 24-year-olds fell for the third year in a row. On average they watched 148 minutes per day less last year than in 2010.
