Most surprising was the fact that people wanted to watch the news while eating (or waiting) at a QSR. In many cases we find that such content doesn't perform a real function in retail digital signage deployments, however in a QSR setting where people are often dining alone, catching a quick bite or simply waiting on line, the availability of this kind of non-commercial distraction makes more sense.
