Spring brings changes to the way TV screens are used in Poland. 

Polish viewers in May spent on average 3 hours and 32 minutes a day in front of their home television screens, which calculates to 14 minutes less than in April 2024. The components of this viewing also changed: time spent with traditional television fell by 6% from April, while time spent watching streaming content increased by 2%. 

Among TV programs, Polish series, news programs and entertainment programs enjoyed the largest audiences in May. Among streaming content sources, Netflix, HBO Max and Viaplay recorded increases. This translated to an increase in streaming’s share of total video viewing on TV screens, which reached a record 8.6% in May (the highest level since the launch of the Gauge in Poland in December of 2022. Netflix has strengthened its leading position among streaming services as its share of TV usage rose to 2.2% (from 1.9% in April).c

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 comparisons.
