According to the CSA’s Observatoire de l’équipement audiovisuel des foyers study, close to two thirds of households have one or more TVs connectable to the internet.
The study also found that a majority of French homes – some 56.3% – still receive TV signals via a terrestrial aerial, down 2.6% in the six months up to the end of the June. The proportion of homes that receive TV via an internet connection increased by 2.8% in the same period to 54.4%, including cable homes. Some 23.1% of homes received satellite TV.
About a quarter of homes receive TV via a terrestrial aerial only, while a third of homes used several means of reception, most commonly digital-terrestrial TV combined with IPTV delivered by one of the country’s ISPs.
The average number of screens in French homes has increased from 4.8 in September 2012 to 5.5 today. Homes now on average have 1.6 TVs, 1.4 PCs, 1.9 mobile phones and 0.6 tablets.
While TVs still predominate, homes composed of single people, students and the young are less likely to have a TV, according to the statsitics, as are homes without children and homes in the Paris region.
Almost 65% of homes have at least one TV connectable to the internet. Some 25.7% have a smart TV that can be connected to the internet directly, while 62.6% have a set-top from an ISP. About 8.3% have streaming boxes, and 28.3% have connectable game consoles.
Some 80% of TVs that are actually connected to the web are connected via ISPs’ boxes, with 27.6% being connected smart TVs.
