Television abandoned by young people

| |

Young people aged 16 to 24 are switching off their tellies and moving online, the telecoms watchdog Ofcom has barked.

In its latest report, Ofcom says that the "networked generation" is driving a radical shift in media consumption.

They are apparently abandoning their tellies, switching off their radios and spurning print magazines in favour of online services, the study says.

Those that remain are looking at broadband and digital TV rather than that old fashioned wireless thingee. Most are using broadband connections for internet telephone calls too.

A spokesOfcom said that 16 to 24 year olds spend nearly three hours on the world wide wibble each week.

More than 70 per cent use some kind of social networking site, such as My Space, and one in five have their own website or blog.

As a result they are watching seven hours less TV per week than the average viewer. More at the Beeb, here.
