Type of TV connection at home

Statistics Norway has been conducting annual surveys of media use since 1991 (with the exeception of 1993). The surveys are financed mainly by the Ministry of Culture. The objective is to map the Norwegian population's use of different mass media.

Below you can find statistics documenting the type of TV connection at home in the Norwegian population, including traditional connections as satelite, cable and over-the-air, as well as Internet based connections like smart-TV, Apple TV, Chromecast. Data are given as share of population in per cent, and can be broken down by age, sex and education from year 2000 onwards.

Notes:

2020 data are recalculated from share of population owning a TV set to share of total population.

Cable includes fibre networks.

2015 onwards questions about small antenna networks are no longer included in the survey.

The category "ordinary antenna with more than 1 channel" was replaced with the category "digital antenna" when the rollout of the digital terrestrial television network was completed in 2009.
