Christian charity supports families coming together to watch TV

A shift in our TV habits shows living room telly is making a comeback.

A study has found 91% per cent of us watch TV in their main room at least once a week, just families in the 1950s. 

The research, by media regulator Ofcom, also reveals more people are living in homes with just one television.

It also shows we're multi-tasking while we're watching, thanks to gadgets such as tablets and smart phones.

Emily Petty is from Christian charity Mothers' Union.

She tells Premier's News Hour that time in front of the TV together can be good for families, as long as it's part of a range of activities:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
