They still use people meters. The households each take part for I think a three year term. I guess catch up views get counted from their respective website data. So if you don't have a people meter or use web catch up, it you won't have any effect on the ratings whether you watch it or not.I have no idea. No one in my family has ever been asked (and we've watched a lot of tv between us over the years so we often ask the same question).
