Ofcom's latest report shows TV is blooming

Ofcom report: TV is blooming

Ofcom’s new Communications Market Report 2013 is a must-read if you are in media. This is proper research and is packed with positive news for TV.

It is jam-packed with facts and insights which set out the reality of media in the UK – and it shows that TV is thriving like never before.

You’ll find all the key numbers; from the role of TV in the living room, smart TVs, Live TV and VOD, to time-shifting, multi-screening, Twitter and TV, online TV revenues and broadcaster investment.

James Thickett, Ofcom’s Director of Research, said: 'Our research shows that increasingly families are gathering in the living room to watch TV just as they were in the 1950s – but now delivered on bigger, wider and more sophisticated sets….Just a few years ago, we would be talking about last night’s TV at work or at school. Now, we’re having those conversations live while watching TV – using social media, text and instant messaging.'
