Several of the magazines with the highest circulation in Germany were TV guides, such as TV 14 and TV Digital. Each is published by some of Germany’s and Europe’s most successful media companies.
Highs and lows
Several other TV program guides rank among the most printed German magazines, reflecting the fact that television remains one of the most used mediums in Germany. Daily TV viewing time has also remained high during recent years. It has become a tradition to have a TV guide lying beside the television set, within easy reach. However, while the aforementioned magazines largely papered the German magazine landscape, they are also among those which have suffered the highest year-on-year circulation losses, a not unfamiliar development on the print media market in general.
In terms of reach, TV guides ranked somewhat lower than such heavyweights as the Sunday edition of the tabloid newspaper Bild, Bild am Sonntag or the news magazine Der Spiegel. The same could be said when comparing best-selling consumer magazines in Germany, with Der Spiegel, Stern and women’s magazine Bunte in the lead.
