Expected decline in TV consumption among young people

In the 17th TMT Predictions Report by Deloitte, TV viewing by 18-24 year olds will decline in the UK by 10% from 2018 to 2019.

Paul Lee, head of research for technology, media and telecommunications at Deloitte said: “Many forces that distracted young people away from traditional TV, such as smartphones, social media and video piracy, have peaked. Digital distractions will remain, but their impact is unlikely to increase further.".

The 2018 report also concluded that the live media sector will generate £24 billion this year in the UK, up 2% from 2017.
