    What are these 16 to 34 year olds watching?

    Personally I only really find it essential for advice on DIY type tasks. What do you watch on YouTube?

    Me + GF usually watch 30-60mins of YouTube each day on the TV in bedroom before going to sleep. There's probably only 10-15 channels that we watch but between them there's usually a couple of new 15-20 minute videos each day. We watch:
    Rock climbing - bouldering bobat, bouldering dabrats, Dave macLeod, Magnus Mitbo, Rock Entry, Robbie Phillips, Paul Robinson
    Blacksmithing - Alec Steele
    Cooking - Cowboy Kent Rollins, French guy cooking
    Science/Tech - Steve Mould, Tom Scott, bigclive

    I also watch a few channels on my own because GF doesn't like them:
    AvE, This Old Tony, LockPickingLawyer, The Post Apocalypic Inventor.

    The only two things I watch on there: Super GT, which is live with English commentary at about 6am on about eight Sundays a year. And then Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, because some kind soul has uploaded the entire four series and special as the DVD uncut episodes. Sometimes watch a Periodic Videos upload, but rarely anything else.

    That’s probably the adverts that appear behind the scenes that they don’t even know that’s playing.

    Car project restorations/restomods at the moment. Massive fan of "Restore It" as they don't chat nonsense over it, so it's soothing and calm to watch them rebuild cars and engines. They're doing an E30 M3 at the moment: https://www.youtube.com/c/RestoreIt

    On the flip side to that AvE, JayZ2Cents, GamersNexus, Binging with Babish, Primative Technology and this dude who makes scale models of stuff. Again another no speaking just doing channel of win.

    And 16-34 wonder WTF older folks are watching for up to 6 HOURS PER DAY on average on broadcast TV:


    Personally, at 38, I watch probably about an hour per day of YT. Though most of that is listened to more than watched (podcast-style content).

    And I watch 0 minutes per day of broadcast tv, except on Saturdays where I watch evening TV with the family.

    well from what I can gather they're regularly watching you-**** but it ain't always youtube.

    My youtube? Music videos, tutorials in various software/music tuition, DIY as people have said, and tech stuff. Occasionally sport or trying to find old TV clips/adverts etc. The latter usually for a pubquiz question or to prove I'm not going mad when I talk about something other people can't remember.

    I probably use mine way more for music than anything else, especially as I've let my spotify lapse for now.
