We have the opportunity to learn some interesting details about the habits of the Italian public in terms of TV series through a study conducted in Italy by 2BResearch in March 2022 on behalf of Serially.itItalian free streaming platform. We watch 12 hours of television per week on average in Italy, with crime dramas being the most popular genre.
The study, on the other hand, delves deeper into the topic. Women, for example, watch 15 hours per week on average, which is more than the combined average of all genders. The single user also tends to watch TV series on multiple screens rather than just one of the available options, according to the data. In total, 60% of viewers use Smart TVs (70% of whom are in the 35-44 age bracket), while 56% use computers (70% of whom are in the 19-24 age bracket). Smartphones come in third place with 55% of the vote. The tablets are positioned last.
