Solutions Research Group published a report today that claims by the year 2013 the typical person will spend as many hours watching video and TV per day as they spend sleeping. Daily video and TV use is expected to climb by 35% with the Internet, Mobile and games driving that growth.

The study says that right now the average American 12 and over spends 6.1 hours per day with video-based entertainment up from 4.6 hours in 1996. The study shows that of the 6.1 hours about 4 hours of that time is from traditional TV viewing.

The remainder of that time is split between video games, web and PC based video and DVDs. Video watching on mobile devices accounts for some of the leftover time as well. Women in the study spent more time on video-based entertainment from TV at 70.4% than men with 57.7%. Men had a slightly higher amount of their video intake from PC viewing.
