A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that more than 90% of Australians aged 14+ watch TV in an average week, equivalent to over 18.5 million potential consumers. Over 16.5 million (81.8%) watch Commercial TV on an average day, while a further 6.4 million (31.8%) watch Pay TV/Subscription Video-on-Demand in an average week. Analysis shows that 88.4% of Pre-Boomers and 75.3% of Baby Boomers (75.3%) agree that they "always watch the news on TV to keep me up-to-date" compared to 52.1% of Generation X, 33.5% of Millennials and 27.2% of Generation Z. However, this trend is reversed when it comes to multi-tasking while watching TV: 65.2% of Generation Z and 60.1% of Millennials agree with the statement "I like to surf the net while watching TV". This compares to 43.4% of Generation X, 18.4% of Baby Boomers and just 8% of Pre-Boomers.
