US online video watching on the rise A recent US survey has showed that more and more internet users are watching videos, films and TV episodes online.
Over the course of the last year, YouTube has widened it lead as the top site for online video although TV networks have seen a large increase in video seeking visitors.

The study, which surveyed 2500 US adults, said that approximately 65% of those surveyed had watched a video on YouTube over the last year, compared to only 42 percent last year.

"Viewing videos online seems to inspire a sense of adventure, particularly among younger viewers",
Joan Barten Kline, a spokeswoman for the company, said in a statement.

"They seem to take particular pride in their finds online and share them with friends", Barten Kline added.
