Supplementary notes

* More than one type of reception in the same household is possible.
The source specifies: "As the type of reception used in TV households is the main focus of this survey, TV sets that use a shared satellite TV device, but do not need a separate receiver for TV reception (SMATV-CH households) are counted as cable TV households. Therefore, only TV sets with a separate satellite receiver count as satellite reception. |...| Households that use more than one type of reception are counted multiple times. Therefore, the sum of all reception types exceeds 100 percent."

** Decrease mainly due to different calculation methods. The number of households decreased by approximately 0.7 million or 1.7 percent to accommodate for regional, age, and gender changes.

*** The source states the following: "Connected TV: TV device which is connected directly or via another device to the internet (not necessarily a permanent connection)".
