Consumers are spending more on
in-home leisure
‘We see no reason why film TV
watching at home will decline. Indeed
the quality and appeal of film watching
in the comfort of our living spaces is
only set to rise
as ownership of high quality screens
that ever more impressively rival the
cinema increase and as access to films
at home multiply.’
