Telly ad­dicts chan­nel anger

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

MORE than half of Brits ar­gue over who is in charge of the TV re­mote on a weekly ba­sis, a sur­vey has re­vealed.

And 35 per cent are even more con­trol­ling as they row over the re­mote ev­ery day.

One in five ad­mit to hid­ing the re­mote from their part­ners, fam­ily, house­mates or chil­dren.

The sur­vey of 2,000 peo­ple, by Cur­rys and PC World, looked into our worst telly habits caus­ing ar­gu­ments at home.

Chan­nel hop­ping (30%), delet­ing recorded shows (11%) and los­ing the re­mote (10%) are all key is­sues.

Un­der the sofa, in the bed and be­hind cush­ions were just a few of the top re­mote hid­ing places.

A mas­sive 40% of those polled said the big­gest ar­gu­ment is over vol­ume – mak­ing it the na­tion’s worst TV habit.
