Quality Australian-made dramas Offspring, Love Child, Wentworth and Home & Away topped the networks’ most watched shows.

Since the introduction of the new video player measurement in February this year, over 3.5 billion minutes of broadcast quality television have been watched across a range of different devices.

“Australian viewers want to enjoy their favourite TV shows anytime, anywhere and on their screen of choice,” Think TV CEO Kim Portrate said.

“The latest VPM figures demonstrate that in addition to the 85 hours and 12 minutes we spend watching broadcast TV on a television set every month, there is an increasing demand for broadcast quality television across a range of different screens.

“Broadcasters are meeting consumers demand for television everywhere head-on with quality, curated content in environments that are safe for both viewers and advertisers.”

OzTAM’s VPM Report is a world-leading approach to capturing census level data on participating broadcasters’ content played on connected devices. The latest VPM report can be viewed here.
