But PC is still the top dog.
A vast number of consumers continue to make the switch from physical media to digital alternatives, and new data from J.D. Power and Associates looks at the platforms that are supporting the move.
It shows that 18 per cent of consumers now pay for tablet-based video content, up from 11 per cent in 2011, while premium view via mobile phone is up to 16 per cent from 14 per cent, as PC/Mac views fell from 48 per cent to 39 per cent.
Almost one-third (29 per cent) of video service users now watch premium content via mobile devices, while 23 per cent watch content via games consoles.
However, users spend an average of 6.3 hours per week viewing console-based content, compared to 5.3 hours on desktop, 4.9 hours on a phone, and 4.4 hours on a tablet.
Frank Perazzini, director of telecommunications at J.D. Power and Associates, said: "Customers are becoming more comfortable viewing their paid content on a smaller screen, such as a tablet or mobile phone.
"The convenience of the device, as well as the availability of the content, has made it much easier to experience video on a variety of devices. However, the desire to watch events and video content as it happens is still prevalent, as more than 50 percent of viewers watch live television programming."
