Mobile Phone On Demand TV Services Boom

The typical UK resident spends 90 minutes per month watching their favourite shows using on-demand services on their mobile phone, laptop, tablet or television set.

Findings from Thinkbox and the Broadcasters’ Audience Research Board (Barb) indicate that Brits are spending more time viewing on-the-go.

With specially developed apps available through multimedia portals like the App Store, Google Play and BlackBerry App World, it is no surprise that gadget lovers are taking advantage.

Owners of smartphones like the Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 or BlackBerry Z10 can download tools for free and browse through impressive libraries of their favourite series.

Those who install BBC iPlayer can watch episodes of Eastenders at the click of a button, while others can catch up with Hollyoaks on 4oD or Coronation Street via ITV Player.

Advanced handsets with large, high-resolution touchscreens and impressive sound systems, like the HTC One X+, make watching shows comfortable and enjoyable.
