Four out of five online Canadians watch YouTube each month, said a new study by Solutions Research Group Consultants Inc. (SRG). In an entry on SRG’s blog last month, the Toronto research firm said its most recent Digital Life Canada study found that 80 per cent of “online Canadians” watch YouTube each month. According to the study, which surveyed 1,000 people who use the Internet and are over the age of 12, the average Canadian viewer watched 21 YouTube videos each week. “Their reasons for watching more YouTube content seem to be mainly because there is more and better content in general but also because there is more content catering to various interests as well as how-to videos and tutorials—from cooking to snowboarding—that inform and educate,” the blog post said. SRG said 22 per cent of respondents said they watched YouTube videos on a device other than a personal computer or laptop in the previous month while 19 per cent said they connected their computer to a larger screen, such as a TV, to watch YouTube videos.
