Kids in Netflix-Only Homes Skip 230 Hours of Commercials Every Year

Have you ever thought about how many hours a year your kids are seeing ads tempting them to want new stuff?

The team over at the Exstreamist did just that and found out that the average kid watches 230 hours of commercials every year.

According to the work, the average child watches 2.68 hours of TV every day adding up to almost 980 hours of TV every year. With every hour, according to the Exstreamist, the child will see about 14.25 minutes of commercials.

For many parents, this is one more great reason to cut the cord. Not only does it save money but it also opens up a new world of content you can not find on cable TV. Add in the fact that it also gives you greater control over what content your kids see and the ability to block ads.

Have you noticed any changes in your kids viewing habits? Was the ability to block commercials a part of why you cut the cord? Leave us a comment and let us know if it played a part in you becoming a cord cutter.
