"People in households with subscriptions to video streaming services spend significantly more time in front of a screen than those in other households, the figures showed. Homes with the subscription streaming services spend 2 hours 45 minutes a day on time-shifted television seen with video game consoles, multimedia devices, and DVD or Blu-ray players. Homes without a subscription to those services spend 1 hour 57 minutes a day on the same screens.Nielsen Charts Reach of Video Streaming - NYTimes.com

Homes with subscription streaming services spend 66 minutes a day watching time-shifted television, while households without subscriptions spend 56 minutes a day with it."
