Abstract

This chapter presents an inquiry into Danish children’s and adolescents’ media habits and preferences when it comes to fictional screen content, with a specific focus on the role of Danish content and platforms. The inquiry reveals a strong preference for and large consumption of content originating from the US on global streaming platforms, and, when it comes to specific fictional screen content, Danish children clearly favour American films and series over those from Denmark or elsewhere. When asked to rate specific films and series, they favour genre-driven titles over titles with “higher” artistic or cultural value. The chapter shows that on the global streaming platforms, Danish children and adolescents find an abundance of what to them is high-quality content, perceived as more relevant to them than domestically produced content. A concluding discussion points out the potential implications of the findings for existing curatorial practices in domestic public service broadcasters, both in general as well as in terms of national funding models.
