    I'm curious as to whether a right wing "news" channel is just the market providing what the (generally older, generally more conservative) audience of live TV wants.

    Your poll is flawed.
    I watch live sport. I mostly watch streaming. I occasionally watch Youtube.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    There's no 'no' option. Or 'only DVDs' (if that counts as TV).

    it'll go down a storm and will be viewed by millions.

    just look at the british general demographic - Tory govt, Brexit, condolence of the last budget, condolence of massive Govt corruption and incompetence re PPE and Track n Trace, the existence if the daily heil and the express.

    I agree. I tried to edit it but couldn't.

    It's usually on in the background but increasingly Netflix / Disney + that my wife and daughter are watching while I'm reading or browsing the Internet.

    Same as Pross above, although things like MasterChef will make me leave the room. The MFs are dead right, GB News will be loved by millions, don't think I'll be one of them.

    Live sport, occasionally Saturday kitchen but the rest of the time netflix.

    The attention it's getting on here before it has even aired, from people who don't appear to like the idea is making me curious about the new channel.

    I watch lots of sport but with cycling that on its own is a fair bit, and then a few quiz shows like Mastermind, University Challenge, news, the odd documentary and my other half watches a lot of detective/murder type dramas. Then I watch some stuff off Netflix too - the odd film or series but it's more my kids or wife watch a lot of that kind of stuff.

    Nobody launches a channel to lose money, they must think they have an audience.

    I don't think anyone has suggested there isn't a market for it. In fact people on both sides have said the opposite.

    The missus and I watch lots of censored . Deceives stuff and quiz shows. She likes gardening stuff and things like the sowing bee. Quite a fan of Grayson Perry’s art club thing.
    I watch the sport on my iPad.

    For fear of sounding like a snob, this statement doesn’t really mean much.

    I don’t really like football which puts me out of step with the majority view of the rest of the country. It doesn’t really mean much or change the arguments if we are out of step.

    I don’t watch soaps or reality TV either. Doesn’t mean I can’t lament their place on TV schedules.

    If the question is "do you watch scheduled programming", the answer is almost exclusively "no", except for live sport and the odd major news item. Otherwise, why would you? I'm looking forward to "Line of Duty" coming back*, but I'll watch it when it suits me.

    *Unless it's as rotten as the last series, the whole "H" thing is ridiculous.

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    Most people don't know much about football. A majority of people do not watch any football at all, and pick up a small amount of knowledge by osmosis.

    The minority that do watch is a lot of people though, and is much more than any other sport, which explains the blanket coverage.

    There's a couple of regulars on here who will be exactly within their target audience.

    Let's pretend that those regulars make up 2% of the catestop universe. Most channels would be very pleased with 2% of the population watching them

    Streaming services and live sport for me and that tends to be at weekends only, during the week I have the radio on or do some reading. In fact the TV aerial feed hasn't worked for a few years now after a storm and I've not felt inclined to do anything about it.
  • kingstongrahamkingstongraham Posts: 17,777
    Watch quite a lot on Iplayer or recorded, but nothing as it's being broadcast except sport. Why would I watch an advert if I don't have to?
