Among the 1,200 Australians surveyed, 52 per cent of the millennials (16-34 year olds) regularly watched TV shows on mobile devices- a leap from 17 per cent in 2013.

The research also found that a quarter of Aussies are using their mobile devices to get the gossip on their favourite celebrity and actor whilst watching them on TV.
