It's more, the consumption of deferred audiovisual content through the internet only accounts for 8.3% of the total television consumption time. There are some very striking cases, such as Portugal, where 23% of content consumption is on demand. Something similar to what happens in Switzerland, where this percentage stands at 18%.
The biggest TV pull, yes, the series take it. And in 2018 10,000 new productions of this type were launched. 43% were factual, 41% fiction series and only 16% were entertainment. And attention to the trend for 2019 because Eurodata TV considers that the programs with the highest growth will be those of "live surgical operations".
