Smart phones and tablets are not just changing the way we read! New figures released this month show the growing popularity of watching television on mobile devices, helping the BBC iPlayer hit record-breaking numbers of downloads.
This reflects both the growing penetration of internet-connected devices in the market, and the near-universal availability of BBC iPlayer on those devices. Researchers say a third of us now prefer to watch TV on our mobile devices than on the box. At this rate, the figures will soon match those for people who now prefer to read eBooks rather than paper books.
