Ramazan Dramalarını İzleme ve Mısırlıların Geleneksel Televizyon Yerine Video Akış Hizmetlerini Tercihi: Bir Anket Çalışması

Mustafa Yousry Matbouly

Her yıl Ramazan ayı boyunca, Mısırlılar düzenli olarak televizyon dizilerini izlemektedir. İzleyici sayısı Ramazan ayında zirveye ulaşır ve bu nedenle Ramazan dramaları Mısır toplumunda büyük bir kültürel ve sosyal etkiye sahiptir. Ayrıca, Ramazan ayı boyunca video akış hizmetleri Mısır’da daha popüler hâle gelir ve abonelik oranları açısından daha büyük bir başarı elde eder. Bu nedenle, bu çalışma, Mısırlıların neden Ramazan dramalarını izlemek için geleneksel televizyon yerine video akış hizmetlerini tercih ettiğini ve bu hizmetlerin izleme alışkanlıkları üzerindeki etkisini araştırmaya odaklanmıştır. Çalışma kapsamında, çevrimiçi bir anket, farklı yaş ve geçmişlerden 563 katılımcının katıldığı Mısır halkından oluşan bir örnekleme dağıtılmıştır. Toplanan verilerin eleştirel değerlendirmesi, Mısırlıların Ramazan dramalarından ne kadar etkilendiğini ve bunların hayatlarının ne kadar önemli bir parçası olduğunu göstermiştir. Veriler ayrıca video akış hizmetlerinin geleneksel televizyona göre birçok avantaj sunduğunu vurgulamaktadır. Aynı şekilde, çalışma, Mısırlıların izleme alışkanlıklarında meydana gelen değişikliklere dair değerli bilgiler sağlamıştır. Sonuç olarak, Mısırlı izleyicilerin pek çok nedenle Ramazan dramalarını izlerken geleneksel televizyon yerine video akış hizmetlerini tercih ettiği sonucuna varılmıştır.
