How TV audiences discover new television shows to watch in Australia
Word of mouth via social media is the most common method of discovering new content.
Discovery of new TV shows on peer-to-peer networks is least common overall with only 9% of people using it; of these people, about 70% of them were male and half of them were aged 18 to 34.
For offline content discovery, the study found that over half of people in Australia hear about new shows from word of mouth and television commercials were used by about 30% of people. About 80% of people who used outdoor advertising were aged 18 to 44, while TV listings and guides were most commonly used by people aged 45+.
