Study: DVR users watch less, not more

By Cory Bergman 

For the last few years, studies have shown that households with DVRs watch more TV than non-DVR households, but a new study concludes it’s the opposite. New data from Mediamark Research suggests that adults in DVR homes are 23% less likely to be heavy television viewers. The likely culprit: these homes are higher-income and wired for broadband. In fact, the study found that DVR users are 81% more likely to be heavy internet users. (Free reg. req.)
