Does it make sense to define TV audiences in demographic terms? How do TV series audiences compare to typical online audiences in Poland? Which productions spark the most heated debates? How do viewers pick shows to watch? Has the online series replaced traditional television for audiences? How important is it for them to access their favorite shows legally? Using data collected as part of this comprehensive online study, MEC’s Joanna Nowakowska and Marcin Gotowiec will attempt to sketch a portrait of the average new TV series viewer.
