A survey conducted by Samsung Electronics has revealed that three in four people spend up to four hours a day watching TV.
To gauge how immersed we are in our telly viewing, Samsung hit the streets to put Irish people’s TV knowledge to the test and find out just how much we recall from our hours of binge-watching.
Samsung ‘disguised’ a QLED TV with 'Ambient Mode' in a jungle setting in Dundrum Town Centre last weekend.
Quizmaster Brian Dowling invited passers-by at random to participate in a quiz to test their TV knowledge to be in with a chance of winning a QLED TV. To win, the chosen passer-by had to answer all questions correctly. Surprisingly, there were some who didn’t get all the answers right.
How many answers did you know?
The soaps came up trumps for one lucky winner on the day as their TV hung in the balance on a Coronation Street question.
From the research, the soaps are the most popular programmes to watch at a set time every day with 45% saying they like to catch up on their regular fix of Eastenders or Coronation Street as they air.
41% like to watch the news live while a third watch major sporting events in real time.
According to the research, when it comes to our viewing habits one in five admit to being binge watchers, preferring to watch an entire series in one go. However, 43% say they tend to watch some programmes live and binge on others.
A key feature of Samsung's the 2018 QLED TV range is 'Ambient Mode', which does away with the black screen. 'Ambient Mode' can mimic the pattern on the wall behind the TV to create an astonishing visual effect in which the TV blends seamlessly into the wall – similar to a chameleon adjusting to its surroundings.
