“I watch Rustavi 2, it’s the most professional channel in Georgia, always first to get the news. I can’t say I trust it, however it’s the best channel that exists in Georgia for now.”
Eter, 45, cook

“I have my TV on all day long, it is like a habit. I might not be watching it at all, but as soon as I come home from work I turn it on and it stays on all evening, while I am doing other things. My TV is on all day.”
Maka, accountant, 24

“I don’t watch TV, instead I spend all my time sitting at the computer. I think you can find a lot more information on the internet than on TV, and also I can choose what I want to watch or read on the internet, unlike the TV.”
Giorgi, student, 19

“I watch news mainly. I think there is not a big choice on Georgian TV, except for the news programmes.”
Vazha, businessman, 50

“When I want to watch the news, I watch only the BBC and CNN because their news items are presented better than the others.”
