Abstract [en]

Seeing as many TV-stations in Sweden now choose not to air children's programs in their linear TV- channels, it seams as though they are abandoning their efforts to attract children to watch it. Instead we can observe that the children's programs produced or bought by the TV-stations now are available on the networks website through web-based television.

This study was conducted in order to find out the consequences of the paradigm shift and how the usage of the service of web-based television is received among children. The research focuses on finding out whether children at the age of nine prefers watching linear television or web-based television. The result of this study should consequently point out the future of the consumption of television.

The paper has used the following methods: focus group interviews with children at the age of nine, analysis of specific data acquired from TV-stations and public data and previous case studies of children's use of web-based television. The conclusion of this study is that children are very much aware of the web-based television service and use it regularly, however they still prefer to watch their shows on linear television due to the quality of the broadcast.

However, as the young generation of today is brought up in a media climate where internet plays a major role, the report states that it is most likely that web-based television will play an important role in the media climate of the future.

Abstract [sv]

Många tv-kanaler satsar idag mindre på program riktade till barn i deras tablåbaserade utbud. Dessa program finns numer istället tillgängliga på kanalernas hemsidor genom webbaserad tv. Detta innebär att denna generation barn, för att se sina barnprogram, är vana vid att bruka ett nytt medium; nämligen webb-tv. Denna uppsats undersöker därför konsekvenserna av denna nya form av mediekonsumtion.

Examensarbetet fokuserar på nioåriga barns preferenser när det kommer till i vilket medium de helst ser sina barnprogram. Uppsatsen har med hjälp av fokusgruppsdiskussioner med barn i åldern 9 år, data rörande tittarsiffror i olika media samt relevant litteratur dragit slutsatsen att barn i denna ålder föredrar att konsumera sina program i linjär tablåbaserad tv. Detta trots ett regelbundet användande av webbaserade tv-tjänster. Att de föredrar det traditionella linjära tv-mediet beror i till största del på ljud- och bildkvalitetsaspekter som ofta håller en högre standard än i webbaserade tv-tjänster.

Då den nya generationen mediekonsumenter växer upp i ett mediaklimat där internet har en stor betydelse menar dock detta arbete att det är ytterst roligt att webbaserade tv-tjänster har en betydande roll för framtidens mediekonsumtion.
