The new series of results of the Observatory, bearing on 3rd and 4th quarters 2017 for television, has confirmed the trends with work for several years screens reception of television. It also has the annual results of 2017 for the radio.

With a rate of stable equipment around 94%, the television set remains the most widespread screen in the hearths. To reach audio-visual contents, it is today usual to associate the television set with one or more alternate screens: initially the computer (86% of hearths equipped), then the smartphone (78% 15 years and more) and finally the shelf (48% of hearths equipped). The one year progression on the other of this connected equipment proves the attraction increasingly larger of connected consumption. The television set is not in rest: more than 65% of the hearths have a suitable for connection television set, whose very majority is actually connected. The decoder of the FAI is the most widespread mode of connection.

In progression marked since many years, the reception by Internet of television has, for the first time in the 4th quarter 2017, joined the terrestrial hertzian reception : these two modes of reception reach both 55% of penetration in the hearths. Continuing its growth, the telegraphic reception (ADSL, cable paying and optical fiber) should quickly become the first mode of reception of television on the whole of the stations of the hearth, as it is already the case for the principal station. The DVB remains crucial: it is the single mode of reception for 24% of the hearths and its exemption from payment makes of it the mode of reception privileged on the slave station with 42.3% of the hearths equipped TV having at least a station exclusively in terrestrial hertzian reception. Moreover, work of modernization of platform DVB in progress has authority to maintain and reinforce the interest for this mode of reception, consolidating its central position within the hearths.

Lastly, the radio operator media are a challenge of importance for the Council, which decided at the end of 2017 to usually give a new impetus to the development of technology +, support of the terrestrial digital radio. In 2018 and 2019, of the calls for candidate will be successively launched in the 30 not yet covered most important basins of life, and this parallel to the launching of a metropolitan call for candidate. Through a regular follow-up of the equipment in radio operator supports, as well dedicated as multi-media, the Observatory will constitute an invaluable information source in order to Usually evaluate the potential audience of the candidates to the diffusion +, and to measure the growing interest of the listeners for this new fashion of reception.
