Television consumption in Germany as of August 2019, by age group German television viewers spent an average of more than three and a half hours a day watching TV. It is still one of the most used mediums among the population. Figures differed across age groups but were generally higher in those including viewers aged 49 and older. Those aged 3 to 13 years spent the least daily amount of time in front of the TV.
Watch it

On a weekday, based on recent figures, most viewers spent an average of around two hours watching TV. They split their time between the following genres: the news, crime series and movies, followed by animal and nature programs. Live sports broadcasts and regional programs were also popular. Watching TV several times a week was widespread among the population, compared to those who did so several times or once a month. Increased TV time among older viewers may be due to the inclusion of retirees who are home more often. That is not to say that children and younger viewers necessarily spend less time watching TV programs, but how they access and consume it has changed, with influencing factors such as online streaming services and mobile device ownership.

Samsung TVs most popular

German viewers preferred Samsung TVs, while other leading brand choices included LG and Panasonic. As for the future of television programming and broadcasting, industry revenue is predicted to rise in the 2020s, reaching over 11 million U.S. dollars in 2023.
