Slovaks watch TV more frequently than they listen to radio or read print, the national survey MML-TGI 2019 has found.

The Slovak company MEDIAN SK said 3.3 million viewers watched TV regularly in 2019, bringing the total viewership of all channels to 74 percent. Radio stations came second with a listenership of 58 percent.
