Supplementary notes

The source provides the following information about the methodology: "Respondents are asked to select a point on a 5-point scale to best describe their tendency to prefer watching TV shows on-demand or as they are broadcast. On this scale, 1= I prefer watching TV shows via on-demand, catch-up or streaming services, and 5= I prefer watching TV shows as they are broadcast live on regular television channels."

This question was phrased by the source as follows: "For each of these sets of statements, please select the point on the scale that best describes you - are you at one end of the scale or somewhere in the middle?"

The source does not specify the type of survey.
