Poll Recap: Cable/Satellite Is Preferred Way to Watch the Olympics

The results of last week’s survey are in. We asked how you are watching the 2014 Winter Olympics and just over half of you chose cable/satellite TV. Off-air antenna was the next closest choice with 19 percent of the vote, followed by DVR recordings and “other,” which netted 12 and 11 percent, respectively. We interpret “other” as meaning you are watching two or more ways—say, streaming and cable/satellite—which in hindsight probably should have been a choice. Remarkably, streaming via a smart TV got no votes. Here’s the complete breakdown…

51% – Cable/satellite to my big-screen TV/projector

19% – Off-air antenna to my big-screen TV/projector

12% – Time-shifted programming recorded to my DVR

11% – Other

4% – Streaming via PC

2% – Streaming via mobile device/app

1% – Live… I’m in Sochi!

0% – Streaming via smart TV
