Beijing residents have said that TV will be the most important medium for them to experience the Beijing 2008 Olympics, followed by newspaper and radio.

Those are the survey results released by researchers from the Beijing Academy of Social Sciences (BASS).

Approximately 85% of those surveyed said they would watch the Games on TV, while 42% would use newspapers and 35% would listen to the radio.

Only 24% would go to the sports venues.

Over half of those surveyed, 52%, said that high prices would prohibit them from buying tickets to events.

The results are published in the book "The Social Development Report of China's Capital (2006)".
