    How much do you watch "regular" scheduled TV programming compared to how much you stream TV programs?
    (Speaking TV-Series, sports, news, entertainment shows, talk shows, debates etc --- anything that is made for a TV network or station).


    I estimate that I actually watch scheduled TV more than I stream. Probably about 70/30 in favour of scheduled TV.

    I would estimate that I stream about 5 %, watch about 35 % of scheduled TV and watch 60 % on DVD's I've bought/things I've taped on VHS tapes.

    DVD, streaming and YouTube. No TV, that's the only percentage* I know.

    I am pretty much the same. I don't watch any normally scheduled TV live.

    I'm not sure about the percentage but I still build my viewing around the broadcast schedule. However, I have been adding increasing amounts of streaming so I can watch more of what I actually want to see rather than just what happens to be on.

    I watch only the News live, and if I'm bored I will surf to see what's on live. Like now im wacthing a show on BBC Two about Flu.

    But 90% of my viewing is streaming or stuff I have recorded.

    100% regular, although even at that most of my viewing is DVD boxsets. Bulk of the TV viewing is sport.

    I would say I am 99.9% streaming. If something major is happening I will watch the news on regular TV and I've been watching the Democratic debates live--otherwise everything is streaming.

    Ironically, I need streaming to watch the live coverage of the Democratic contest so that has bumped up my quota a lot recently.

    I would say 90% streaming, 10 % regular.
