    Just a quick poll on the changes to Emmerdale, EastEnders and Coronation Street, to see how soap viewers are now watching clashing soaps.

    If I could add a poll

    1. The soaps I watch don't clash
    2. The soaps I watch don't clash due to +1 channels
    3. I defer watching one soap and catch up online
    4. I am a Daytime soap watcher
    5. I continue to see all eps of soaps but watch online
    6. I have stopped watching soaps due to the changes.

    How do I put a poll up.

    I stopped watching Emmerdale after the change. That coincided with the end of Poundland Villanelle (Meena) storyline. I opt for Eastenders and Corrie. I catch an odd episode of Emmerdale on Virgin on Saturday but I watched last night and haven't really got a Scooby what's going on. I hope figures plunge and they go back to the old times.

    Looking like ITV is winning, while BBC haven't seen any increases for The One Show, while Emmers is beating EastEnders

    VMTV's live adult audience has dropped significantly since the change, and EastEnders was never as popular so Emmers has retained its audience while Coro St has seen its audience fall, Fair City splitting the audience when it clashes with Coro St and Emmerdale.

    I watch Fair City, Emmerdale and Coronation Street.

    I'm fairly consistent. I sometimes miss the first thirty minutes of Coronation Street on Wednesday or I might watch it on plus one instead.

    I used dip in and out of Emmerdale but have being fairly consistent for the two years.

    Gave up on Eeastenders when it got over run with Carter's and can't face it now. It's just to loud.

    I haven't watched live terrestrial TV in years.

    Im not a soap watcher but my wife is. Again she never watches them live. She'd usually put one on if I go to bed early.

    In short scheduling wouldn't effect our viewing habits at all
