    This may be partly because GWI now counts YouTube among the video-on-demand (VOD) services it asks respondents about. But the general surge in home entertainment during pandemic lockdowns was also a factor here; significant restrictions were in force in Belgium between March and May 2020, as well as during the first four months of 2021, easing only in May 2021.

Time devoted to music streaming did rise by a few minutes, though, to an average 1:39 daily.
