TV viewership in Poland has stabilized, and there were no major changes in viewing habits in April. Linear TV continues to dominate, but the share of streaming viewership is steadily increasing, evidenced by another 0.2 share points in April, accounting for 6.7% of TV usage. Netflix along with YouTube remain the leaders, which again accounted for a combined 3.5% of total viewership on TV. The growth this month came from the Other Streaming category, as increased viewership of additional streaming platforms resulted in a 12% increase in usage.
About The Gauge™
The Gauge™ was created to provide the media industry with a monthly analysis of television usage across key television delivery platforms. Nielsen published its first edition of The Gauge™ in the U.S. in May 2021.
About The Gauge™ Methodology
The data comes from Nielsen’s single-source panel consisting of 3,500 households and almost 9,700 panelists. The Gauge™: Poland is based on monthly AMR (Average Minute Rating) audience share data. The data is presented for people over 4 years old, broken down into cable, satellite, terrestrial television (both linear and shifted in time up to 7 days), and viewership from streaming (live streaming viewership of TV stations on OTT platforms is classified as streaming viewership). The “Other” category includes views of unrecognized content.
Nielsen Poland created this iteration of The Gauge™ using methodologies conceptually similar to those in the U.S. version. Methodological differences should be considered when making any comparisons.
