Croatia v Brazil at 2006 World Cup is Most Watched Programme on TV in Croatia

CroatiaCroatia’s 1-0 loss to Brazil in Berlin at the 2006 FIFA World Cup was the most watched programme on television in Croatia in the last 7 years, according to results from a recent study analysing the TV market in Croatia.

Croats showed that they were a nation mad on sports, as the second most watched programme on television was also a sporting event – a match between Croatia and Poland at the 2009 World Handball Championship which was held in Croatia. The first non-sporting event came in at number 3 on the list – the final night of the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest. On the domestic front, Nova TV is currently the most watched station in the country, whilst Jabuka TV is the most watched local station.

There has also been a large increase in alternative viewing platforms away from local TV stations, where the convincing leader is children’s programme Nickleodeon, followed by Fox Life and Fox Crime, National Geogrephic and the Universal Channel. Classic TV was in 6th place, followed by RTL Plus, TV 1000, CineStar TV and National Geographic Wild.

The most watched Croatia soaps from 2006 to 2012 were ‘Ljubav u zaleđu’, ‘Larin izbor’ and ‘Obični ljudi’. Although ‘Ljubav u zaleđu’ has the highest average, 946,000 per episode, ‘Larin izbor’ has twice as many as many in a fewer amount of episodes. (Pic: FIFA)
