TRENDS: Where are your fans watching the game?

A new study reports that 32% of sports fans now enjoy watching live sports on their mobile device, a sharp increase from 20% just five years ago. The Sports & Technology study, commissioned by the Consumer Electronics Assn., finds that TV, of course, remains the #1 method for “consuming” sports (90%), while 40% of sports fans say that in the last year they’ve used a computer, tablet or smartphone to view/listen to sports.  Facebook and Twitter also play a role, with 19% of sports fans saying they’ve “consumed” sports content on one of these social media sites in the last year.  

Fun fact: 62% of self-describe sports fans own TV with screen sizes of 40” or more!
