Most popular news sources in Hungary 2019

According to the survey conducted by IPSOS, 34 percent of Hungarians got their news from online news portals. In addition to that, 23 percent of respondents acquired news from social media websites, and 22 percent from television.

Online news consumption

Online news portals represent the main source of information for many people, and modern digital devices allow us to consume news anywhere and anytime. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that according to the findings of a survey conducted in 2020, the majority of Hungarians used their smartphones to read news on the internet. When asked about their preferences, Hungarians enjoyed reading scientific or cultural news, while only a few showed interest in celebrity news and gossip.

Willingness to pay for online news

Even though most Hungarians informed themselves from news websites, only a few were willing to pay for this service. As the findings of a survey pointed it out, 24 percent of Hungarians would pay to access news on the internet. In 2020, Hungarians’ most common reason for refusing to pay for online news was that they could access the same information free of charge from other sources, while every fifth person claimed that they could not afford paying for news.
