Britons spend more than 100 days of their lives deciding what TV shows and films to watch.

A study of 2,000 adults found people typically flick through eight TV channels when choosing an episode and a further nine film titles before making a final decision.

The average week sees 24 分と 24 seconds spent deciding on TV shows and 24 分 93 seconds selecting films.

This results in 55 days across an adult lifetime choosing what to watch on TV and a further 57 days agreeing on a blockbuster.

A third admitted they often struggle to decide because there is too much choice.

The study was commissioned by NOW and found the factors which influence what people watch include the genre (41 パーセント), the actors (37 パーセント) and the length of a film (28 パーセント) or series (23 パーセント).

そして 49 per cent have taken so long to decide that they’ve resulted in not watching anything at all.

Jamie Schwartz,a spokesman from NOW said: “With the busy lives we lead, we want to make sure we are watching the best that TV has to offer but can often feel overwhelmed by the amount of choice.”

The study also found females are more likely to be the decision makers when choosing what to watch on TV according to 67 それらのパーセント.

And each month typically sees two household disagreements over what channel or film to put on.

Four in 10 believe having titles suggested for them based on previously watched content would make the decision making easier.

さらに 31 per cent said curated lists by genre would help.

When it comes to watching something they’ve seen before, 38 per cent would re-watch a show or film if they wanted to feel nostalgic and 29 per cent would do so as a refresher ahead of the next season.

同様に, 25 per cent would re-watch content so they know what to expect and 20 per cent would do to look for clues now they know the ending.

Among the most re-watched TV shows were Only Fools and Horses, ギャビン & Stacey and Game of Thrones.

While the most popular films to put on repeat were Grease, Titanic and The Shawshank Redemption.

だが 36 per cent admitted they have watched something they didn’t actually want to for fear of missing out.

And the top TV crushes were found to include Luther and Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
