The UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) has released a Statistical bulletin covering usage of the internet by households and individuals.

In 2016 new estimates were collected on activities carried out on a smart TV. Watching internet streamed TV via a smart TV was carried out by 18% of adults. Using a smart TV for internet browsing via a browser app and using other apps were both carried out by 5% of adults. Looking at these activities by age group shows that more than a quarter (27%) of those aged 25 to 34 had watched internet streamed TV on a smart TV.
