Is linear TV dead or not?
The average Slovenian spends four hours a day in front of the TV screen. 80% of this viewing is television. Do you think it's a lot? We are among the 11 most loyal viewers in Europe. The average European spends "only" a little over three and a half hours in front of the TV. Slovenians enjoy watching television, so there is no need to worry about the future of television. Has linear television died? Planet TV believes that it hasn't, based on viewership data from the past three years. Therefore, we won't disappoint our viewers in the coming year. We will trust you with which projects in 2024 will keep our Planet spinning. The owners of Planet, the TV2 media group, remain loyal to Slovenia and are not going anywhere.
