What do your children prefer to watch on television? In my house, children prefer cartoons. And is that despite the series and contests try to make a dent in children's programming, as warned by the report Kids TV Report of the Eurodata TV Worldwide panel of the consulting firm Médiamétrie, of all genres the cartoons remain the favorites of the smallest of the house.
Video games have not reduced television audience
Cartoons continue to be preferred by European children. Thus, of the 15 programs most viewed by minors in generalist channels, 80 percent were cartoons.
Many parents think at first that with the entertainment that new technologies mean for children, such as the use of the Internet through mobile devices and video consoles such as the Wii or the Play Station, the children's television audience would inevitably fall . However, this same report notes exactly the opposite: the time that European children spend in front of television has increased "significantly" for four years.
The most curious thing is that this increase in television consumption is due in part to an intercommunication between both media. Thus the characters in television cartoons have a great influence on videogames and on the websites that children consult with their mobile devices. These characters are presented in the video consoles and the children's computer, producing a synergy between them that, far from reducing television audience, is driving the consumption of these programs
Thus, during the first half of 2012, minors in Spain between 4 and 12 years old they watched television on average 2 hours and 44 minutes, six minutes a day more than in 2011. Since 2005, the consumption of television in minors in Spain has increased by 22 minutes on average per day. However, Italian children spend more time watching television, an average of 2 hours and 50 minutes each day in the first semester, which makes Italy the country where most television consumed by children of the group formed by France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
