Since 1995, the number of available TV channels that come into your home has increased from 41 to 119. This is mostly due to the exponential growth of channels available via cable.
But how many of those 119 channels are you actually watching these days?
According to Nielsen Media, you’re watching about 16. That’s right, 87% of the channels simply aren’t being watched. Apparently, many viewers, especially younger ones, are drifting toward the Internet. Stay tuned to see how all this will develop in the coming years.
