According to a recent Nielsen Total Audience Report, Americans are spending, on average, close to five hours a day watching TV. Apparently, older Americans spend even more time in watching. It’s a shame to think that many of them can’t hear the TV!
If you’re going to spend close to five hours a day doing something, you want to get the most out of it, right?

So, whether you want to watch the news, catch the game or binge watch your favorite sitcom or drama, your personal sound cloud will deliver clear, crisp voices just for you.
American TV Viewing Habits
The Nielsen Report revealed that Americans, as a whole, are spending more than 11 hours every day “listening to, watching, reading or generally interacting with media.” The medium we still love the most, however, still appears to be television.
“Overall, live and time-shifted television, even when accounting for seasonal fluctuations in viewership, still accounts for a majority of an adult’s media usage, with four hours and 46 minutes being spent with the platform daily in first-quarter 2018,” Nielsen reports.
Nielsen credits the increase in the amount of time we spend interacting with our various gadgets to “the growing use of new platforms, as well as the younger, multicultural generations who leverage them.”
Traditional media like TV and radio are holding their own. In what Nielsen refers to as “a testament to the relative stability to these cornerstone media platforms.” Every week, 92 percent of adults in the U.S. still tune in to the radio while 88 percent of us spend time in front of the TV in any given week, according to the report.
