Lean forward is becoming lean back as more people use mobile devices to watch entertainment TV at home. Original, long-form content on Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, etc. will be a catalyst to greater usage.

How TV viewing is changing: 93% of HBO viewing still in TV, 6% on-demand, 1% on HBO GO but 4% for younger skewing shows like "Girls".
