The data about Bulgaria comes from the largest pan-European poll on media use with over 50 000 respondents, conducted by Mediascope Europe on the order of Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB Bulgaria).

TV is still first with 23.2 hours a week, but radio (11.7 hours), and especially newspapers (4.1) and magazines (3.7) lack behind significantly.

In Europe the average use of internet is lower than the one in Bulgaria – 14.8 hours.

The poll covers the entire spectrum of media use – radio, TV, press, magazines and internet, including through computers, mobile devices, tablets and others. In Bulgaria the online study has been conducted by Global Park/ GMI with 1 000 respondents while the offline one - by TNS with 500 respondents.

The poll further shows that in Europe, including Bulgaria, there is a wide-spread "shared use of media." For example, in Bulgaria 36% of men and 38% of women use the net while watching TV. Those ages 16 to 24 have the largest share among people who are online while watching TV.
