Television penetration among French households 2010-2019

While television ownership was almost total in 2010 among French households, this figure declined slightly over the following decade. In 2019, 93.6 percent of French households had a television at home.

Here to stay

While ownership of a television set is slightly down, the French population keep watching television regardless of age. Connected television sets have also found their place in French households, adapting to new consumer demands and new ways of consuming video content at home. Smart TVs are cross-media devices connected to the Internet that provide access to streaming on-demand or over-the-top content (OTT) but can also be linked to external devices such as game consoles or Blu-ray players.

A new way of consuming audio content

These new tools have led to the rise of catch-up television, which makes it possible to watch television programs after they have been broadcast. French viewers have been able to take advantage of the adaptability and comfort offered by catch-up television, which has become an essential part of many consumers' entertainment habits. The volume of catch-up content has increased sharply as a result, with more and more programs available for rebroadcasting.
