How has the media use behavior in Sweden been changed in the past years?

The increasing popularity of web TV services and the consequent downward trend of television viewing reflect the ongoing change in media usage behavior. While the share of Swedish individuals watching television on a daily basis decreased from 86 percent in 2010 to 81 percent in 2019, viewing web TV services grew from 21 percent in 2011 to 47 percent in 2019.
