TV ownership in the US on the decline

US_energy_information_administration_2017The average number of TV sets found in US homes is declining, according to the US Energy Information Administration.

The organisation’s most recent Residential Energy Consumption Survey found that an average of 2.3 televisions were used in American homes in 2015, down from an average of 2.6 televisions per household in 2009.

“The number of homes with three or more televisions declined from the previous survey conducted in 2009, and a larger share of households reported not using a television at all,” according to the report.

“Televisions and peripheral equipment such as cable boxes, digital video recorders (DVRs), and video game consoles account for about 6% of all electricity consumption in US homes.”
