Abstract. The aim of this work is to study the usability of voting on music TV channels. We asked subjects to perform a voting-task on two different music TV shows. The results indicate, that 1) there are small differences in acceptance and understanding of the voting-instructions between users and non-users, 2) the mobile phone is a familiar and the most preferred voting-device and 3) sociability features is a way to support the pricing model of voting services for entertainment applications in TV.
