Is this survey limited to those boxes that have multi-broadcaster online player and a real-time recording capability or does it include those with only a real-time recording capability?

I tend to record most things that I watch, but if I happen to miss something, I will usually try to watch it online.

Totally general. Just trying to get a grasp of what habits are like these days. Personally, I record everything I am likely to watch, then stop the recording or chase play if I watch it on-time. I only watch online if I missed something that looked interesting.

With many users having some some sort of 'capped Broadband service', they are likely to only watch programs on-line as a back-up for when recording fails

I record everything I want to watch and often start watching it 15 minutes late so that I can skip the adverts and still finish watching it at the same time.. 20 minutes for Five!

I don't understand where the data capacity is going to come from if/when a significant proportion of the population spend their time on catch-up services, Netflix etc. Video traffic has a priority because it is delivery sensitive, so what will be left for email and browsing forums?

Me neither. I can't see it happening on 4G, either. Not for a long time, anyway.

Same here. SWMBO seems incapable of managing time! I'm sure she has an undiagnosed bladder problem. I just need to say "the programme you want to watch is starting" and she decides she needs to go for a pee! There goes another quarter of an hour! :)

I have to admit to guilt there, too. I have prostate cancer!
