Over-the-air television has been around for decades, and so have TV antennas. But in recent years, TV antennas have made a comeback as more people drop their expensive cable and satellite subscriptions. It’s no surprise watching TV for free with an OTA antenna is becoming more and more popular.
A new report shows that 34% of TV viewers are accessing their video content with an OTA antenna. In fact, a good chunk of antenna owners are actually part of the younger generation: the report shows that 40% of antenna owners are ages 18-34 compared to 31% of total TV content viewers.
The report also shows that people spend 19% of their time watching TV via their antenna. Antennas are an easy way of accessing HD live TV:
