Penetration rate of YouTube and Twitch in Flanders (Belgium) 2016-2019

Approximately 65 percent of Flemish respondents indicated in 2019 they watched online videos through YouTube in the last month. This number was considerably less for Twitch, which reached a penetration rate of five percent. Unlike YouTube, Twitch streams focus exclusively on online gaming and eSports. Note that this number only covers the Dutch-speaking region of Flanders in Belgium, with no similar data being available for the rest of the country. This is not uncommon for Belgium. The country is divided in three regions, namely Flanders in the north, French-speaking Wallonia in the south and the Brussels-Capital Region in between. These regions have their own governments (alongside the national one) and sometimes act separately from each other. This also means that consumer surveys held in one region, are not necessarily held in the other parts of the country or not even being available nationally. That is the case here.

Supplementary notes

* In 2019, the source mentioned that the numbers were on "gaming videos, such as Twitch". However, numbers from previous years (which were on Twitch specifically) had not changed.

The source does not provide information on the original wording used during the survey. Thus, the wording chosen for this statistic may differ slightly from the one in the survey.
