I'm thinking of making one of those online surveys on attitudes towards and people use of RTE's online content as the debate kicks off over Rabittes plans. It is not good enough for them to get away with the lazy assumption everybody uses their websites and such when there are literally millions of superior services available online. Competitors are also looking for a way to get in on the lolly so I don't expect too much heat on the issue. I want to focus on the public service aspect, if people think they are getting their moniesworth and satisfaction with content compared to elsewhere (that after paying for broadband, we get for free)
Suggestions for questions welcome. Here are some daft ones that I want to develop.
How often do you use RTE content?
How important is the RTE website in your day to day use of the internet?
(ie, how many other websites would you check for news, business, entertainment etc before you would look at RTE
What do you primarily use it for?
How often to you use the RTE player?
How satisfied are you with RTE content?
Is it good value?
Would you be willing to pay more in content improved?
Where did you first learn of the IMF intervention in November 2010?
(I read several articles from international news sites on Friday
I saw the RTE coverage on Sunday evening)
Where did you watch the press conference?
(I watched it online or Sky News while Fair City was still rolling on RTE.
I waited till Fair City had finished and RTE's coverage begin )
I though of more last night, can't remember half them now. Suggestions welcome and accepted.
I want to include a few scale of one to tens and the like
