some study was conducted and it found that most people
"Some study" and "Most people" are incredibly vague and pretty meaningless statements.
According to Ofcom figures for the UK:
"Most 16-24 year olds are watching on-demand and catch up programmes on computers and smartphones rather than on a TV connected to a set-top box. Nearly six in ten young people (57%) regularly watch on demand and catch-up TV on their laptop or PC. Almost half (45%) watch on a smartphone, and four in ten (40%) switch on a set-top box.
But, despite the growth in online viewing, TV still reaches the overwhelming majority of people. Over 90% (92%) watch TV each week, down slightly from 93% in 2013."
For a wider study the IAB polled 4,800 people in 24 countries including the US, UK, South Africa, and France, and those surveyed in China, Turkey, Finland, Singapore, and Russia and Singapore were the most likely to watch long-form videos on smaller screens.
But you still have to be careful how you interpret the term "Long form video".
"36% of smartphone users confirmed to Adobe that they watch long-form videos that last 5 minutes or longer every day on their devices."
You cannot infer that this includes "Movies" too. The question would have to be more specific.
Beware also that every study, depending on who carried it out and why, gives differing results.
Just some thoughts. :)
I can't do it, not regularly. I need a 1080p screen, preferably 38 in. or more. Physical media still offers more consistent video quality, which is why I will eventually get an Ultra HD Blu-ray player once I get my first 4K TV.
