More than one in four British people believe that spending time in front of the television at home is one of the most important ways to socialise with loved ones, a survey has claimed.
The report found that 26% of people believe watching television, DVDs and Blu-rays is an important social interaction with friends and family.
A YouGov Survey for the British Video Association (BVA) found that 73% of people now spend between one and six hours in front of a television screen.
It found that 50% of people have invested in entertainment technology for their living room in the last two years and have bought HDTVs, video game consoles, Blu-ray players and cable, satellite and HD services.
BVA director general Lavinia Carey said: "Improvements in home entertainment technology over the last few years have increased the appeal of that cinema experience in our own living rooms."
