According to a survey released Monday, only a quarter of Americans prefers to watch shows on regular TV monitors, a dramatic drop that reflects the increasing use of computers and smartphones for entertainment.
The report from Accenture, a business strategy, and technology consulting firm, said the percentage of people surveyed online last fall in 26 countries who said the TV monitor was their first choice dropped by 55 percent compared with a year earlier.
Only 25 percent of Americans said they prefer viewing on TVs, compared with 59 percent just a year ago, Accenture said. Just 10 percent of residents in India preferred TVs, compared with 47 percent a year before.
