Online Video Watching Among Young Adults Near-Universal; Nine in Ten

According to a study by Pew Internet, nine in ten (89%) of young adults aged 18-29 are now watching videos online in a regular basis. Additionally, the study indicates that the share of online adults who watch videos on sites such as YouTube and other video-sharing sites has nearly doubled since 2006. "Fully 62% of adult internet users have watched a video on these sites, up from just 33% who reported this in December 2006," according to the report.

More from this report:

"While video sharing sites like YouTube generally feature short clips and a plethora of user-generated content, many users are turning to the internet to watch entire television shows and movies. Overall, 35% of adult internet users say they have watched television shows and movies online. Again, young adults lead the way, as 61% of internet users ages 18-29 say they watch TV shows and movies online. That compares to 32% of those ages 30-49, 22% of users ages 50-64 and just 11% of internet users ages 65 and older."
