More TV viewers turn to web

More television viewers are turning to the Internet to watch videos, films and TV episodes, according to a new survey.

Harris Interactive conducted the survey and Joan Barten Kline, a spokeswoman for the company, said in a statement:

"Viewing videos online seems to inspire a sense of adventure, particularly among younger viewers." More than one-third of viewers overall and half of those 18 to 24 said there is something they really enjoy about discovering a cool video online. "They seem to take particular pride in their finds online and share them with friends," Barten Kline added.

More than 42 percent of YouTube viewers said they visit the site frequently, up from 33 percent last year.

Apart from YouTube, which most people favored because they felt it had almost every video they could find, 43 percent said they have watched a video on a TV-network Web site, followed by 35 percent on news sites and less than 30 percent on search engines such as Yahoo and Google.

This is no different here in the Philippines, most pinoys are now turning to web videos to catch up with tv shows, telenovelas, or cartoon series they failed to watch on TV. Looking at you can see that YouTube is currently 3rd most visited site in the Philippines, another popular video site here is which is like a one-stop video shop for all things anime. This site also has a large collection of asian tv dramas that viewers can watch for free.

How about you, any video sites that are eating your precious time lately? How much of your time is spent on watching TV compared to viewing web videos?
