It’s the chart we were all waiting for. Thanks to Paul for finding it. According to a new BBC survey, there’s a direct link between watching more online video and less ‘normal’ TV:

43 percent of U.K. viewers who watch video from the Internet or on a mobile device at least once a week said they watched less conventional television as a result.

Also, rather more predictably, online and mobile viewing is rising—three quarters of users said they now watched more than they did a year ago.

The other finding that surprised me was the size of the gap between the youngest age band (16-24) and the next group (25-34). All around the world, this seems to be the watershed for the digital divide.
