Streaming services increasingly popular with viewers
FRASER Coast viewers still watch most of their content on free-to-air networks but Streaming and Video On Demand (SVOD) services are making their moves into the lounge room.
According to a poll published on our website, 33% of viewers still watch most of their content on FTA networks (Channels Seven, Nine and 10), though both Foxtel and Netflix (32% each) are catching up.
The battle between the three providers will take on a whole new look in months to come as both Nine and Seven Networks launch their mobile and streaming apps.
Which free-to-air network do you watch the most?
This poll ended on 25 November 2015.
7 Local/Channel Seven
Southern Cross Ten/Channel 10
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
Previously, both Nine (Jump In) and Seven (Plus7) had an irregularly used streaming service, but given Netflix's huge success, in which it already reaches one in every 10 Australian homes, the commercial networks have been forced to expand.
Seven broadcasted the Melbourne Cup on its streaming service on Tuesday, and yesterday reported more than 300,000 viewers (in addition to the two million-plus on TV).
WHAT I'M WATCHING
THE SEQUEL television series to the Evil Dead films debuted on Halloween.
"Ash Vs Evil Dead" follows on from "Army of Darkness", and stars Bruce Campbell who returns as our hero Ash.
The premise follows that of the films, in which Ash accidentally releases evil demons by listening to a recording of the "Book of the Dead".
The series fits into the "comedy horror" genre, and is rated R 18+ for good measure: it is presented with the same ridiculous level of gore that featured in the original movies.
Ash Vs Evil Dead episodes are released every Sunday on Stan.
