My Math Forum Hypothesis Testing Help

In 2015, Netflix subscribers spent an average of 1.5 hours per day streaming content. To determine if there is an increase in viewing, suppose a new survey was conducted of subscribers. Of the 354 people who responded to the survey, an average of 1.6 hours per day were spent streaming content with a standard deviation of 0.4 hours. Test the claim that there has been an increase in Netflix viewing. Use a significance level of 0.01. Use the 8 step hypothesis testing procedure. Would P= 1.5 and p>1.5 be the claim? I was told it was wrong but I cant figure it out
