On Monday Ofcom released their third review of public service broadcasting, examining the public’s consumption of public service broadcasting channels (TV and radio) and their competitors. We’ve examined the report, picked our top findings and charts, and summarised them below, paying specific attention to young people’s media consumption, both digital and traditional. If you want to read the whole document you can get it here.
Next week we’re going to look another recent Ofcom report, this time comparing the UK’s media consumption to the rest of the world. You can keep up with our work by signing up for our newsletters, This Week in Mobile Games and This Week in Youth Insight.
