Cybersourcing in the region of Hradec Králové
Rambousková, Michaela ; Osvaldová, Barbora (advisor) ; Jirků, Jan (referee)
The reason for creating this thesis was my own journalistic work in MF DNES newspaper in Královéhradecký region between 2010 and 2017. As a social networks user I found I use those networks as a tool for my work. I analyzed hundreds of contents of six regional media in Královéhradecký region: the newspapers Deník, MF DNES and Právo, the czech television broadcaster "Česká televize", the czech broadcasting service "Český rozhlas" and the press agency "ČTK". The answer for the question "how regional journalists use social networks as Facebook or Twitter" was that in print media (Deník and MF DNES) they used social networks more in 2016 than in 2010. They are sourcing it both ways - inspiration for the content topic and also as a source of peoples citation. On the other hand, the public service media (Česká televize and Český rozhlas) had only a minimal use of social networks in creating their content. But in case of print media the analysis confirmed, that social networks are becoming an inseparable part of journalistic work.

Doležal, Aleš ; Štoll, Martin (advisor) ; Jirků, Jan (referee)
The text of this diploma thesis called "Video on Demand Phenomenon and the Czech Viewer" describes the current situation in the world of the VOD services. It characterizes all the main elements of VOD and related business and viewer behavior and lifestyle resulting from those characteristics. The work also attempts to briefly describe all the main VOD services on the Czech market with regard to their history, current state and deals they offer to the viewer. The bulk of this work is, however, focused on the survey conducted amongst 140 people aged 19 - 26 and presenting its results. The survey finds that majority of those people prefer binge-watching over linear TV, which leads to very uneven TV watching habits and changes in lifestyle. According to the survey, it also appears that paid VOD is currently almost as popular as cable and satellite TV, but majority of people still don't want to pay for more than one service, which means that more than three quarters of them use internet piracy to get access to the desired content.
