In a recent Jiji Press survey, about 10 percent of Japanese in their teens and 20s said they did not watch television, showing youngsters’ diminishing interest in the medium amid the rising popularity of various online video platforms.

The largest share of respondents — 25.7 percent — said they watched TV for 180 minutes or more daily on average on weekdays, but the proportion was down from 30.9 percent in the previous survey conducted in 2008. Those who watched TV for the same length of time on weekends accounted for 34.2 percent, down from 42.5 percent.
