Poll Result: How You Watch Movies

The results of our latest twitter poll are in.

Over on our twitter page we asked how you watch most movies, with a choice of four answers - Cinema, DVD/Blu-Ray, Streaming/On Demand, or on TV. Here are the results:

TV 4%
We've previously bemoaned the lack of movies on network TV in the modern age, so it's no surprise to see it at the bottom of the poll with a mere 4% of you watching your movies on broadcast TV.

Streaming/On Demand 22%
With the rise of streaming sites like Netflix and Amazon Prime, along with most cable providers offering On Demand services, we were surprised to see just over a fifth of you using this as your primary movie viewing method.

Cinema 28%
With cinema under threat from piracy, streaming, larger home cinema systems etc, it's heartening to see that more than a quarter of you still do most of your viewing at your local theatre.

DVD/Blu-Ray 46%
Physical media is dead, we're told. Well not among TMW readers, with almost half of you watching most movies on DVD or Blu-Ray.

We should remember of course that our readers are a discerning bunch of cinephiles, so we suspect the same poll would produce different results were it taken among the general public.

Make sure that you follow us on twitter to ensure you don't miss out on future polls.
