European countries with the greatest number of adult TV channels 2018 An adult television channel refers to a channel airing programs only suitable for an adult audience in the sense of pornographic content. According to the source, the United Kingdom (UK) had the greatest number of adult television channels, at 38. Austria came second in the ranking with 30 adult channels available. Essentially speaking, one in twelve channels in the United Kingdom was adult themed and one in just over five Austrian channels were of an adult persuasion.
Favorite Genres

Compared to other television channel genres, the number of adult channels available in Europe fell well short. The total number of adult channels across European countries amounted to 155 as of December 2018. The most popular genres included film & TV fiction and sports, which had almost 1.8 thousand channels between them.

TV usage

In the United Kingdom, the average adult spends approximately 3.7 hours per day watching television. There is a clear correlation between the amount of time spent watching TV and a person's age, with people over 65 spending the most time watching TV per day. Although the older generation consumes more TV per day, if they are watching adult entertainment it will be through the TV and not via the internet.
