Word of mouth, via social media, is the most common method of discovering content online. Of people who use these methods, over 20% are aged 18 to 24. 

Recommendations from online viewing platforms such as Netflix are the second-most common method, with 28% of people using it to find new shows to watch.

For offline content discovery, the study found that over half of people in Canada use word-of-mouth recommendations from friends and family to discover new content to watch. Cinema advertisements are most commonly used among young people aged 18 to 24 to find new shows.
