For me this was a surprising result. I assumed that watching short videos was a everyday activity for everyone. Seven of the top percentile were also heavy video users, so video use is not confined to young people.


100 "high user" householders - Radio Listening

Less than 10% of respondents reported listening to the radio online. Very few listened to any music online, except to choose songs for downloading.

Three people reported listening to online radio every day. New Zealand Radio stations provide live streaming, and podcasts of previous programme's which are available for several weeks. The low use of these excellent services is disappointing.
