More Aussies watching and listening to Internet content: ACMA

By

Aussies are watching more content online, with 55% of them watching video via online subscriptions in a week.

New ACMA research highlights that Australia’s love of watching and listening to content online continues to grow.

The ACMAs latest interactive report, Communications and media in Australia: How we watch and listen to content, shows streaming and subscription services soared in popularity in 2020.

The report examines the ways Australians are watching and listening to online and offline content and services – and the devices we use. Highlights include:

  • Australian adults spent more time watching TV and online content in 2020 – an average of 28.5 hours in the week prior to the survey. This increased from 21.4 hours in 2019.
  • The popularity of subscription services rose, with 55% of Australians watching video content via online subscription services in the previous 7 days.
  • Mobile phones were the most popular device used to stream video content at home in 2020, followed by smart TVs and laptops.
  • Over one-third (36%) of Aussie adults watched catch-up TV in the past week, up since 2017. However, watching live free-to-air TV fell over the 4 years.
  • The number of adults tuning in to radio remained steady, while those listening to a music streaming service increased.

The How we watch and listen to content report is part of the Communications and media in Australia series. It is driven by the ACMA research program, which gathers evidence that informs the Authority's decisions as a regulator.
