The study, based on data from 5,000 homes, found that homes with Internet
access watch television eight hours less each week than homes without Web
access, according to a Bloomberg News report.
“Online households are more upscale than their unconnected counterparts, and
that upper-demographic homes, as a whole, watch less television than the U.S.
average,” said Paul Lindstrom, Nielsen vice president in a statement.
The study found that during weekday prime time hours, or 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., Internet households watched 6% less television. Between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays, those households watched 19% less TV.
