  • In Germany, audiences engage with both CBS All Access series The Good Fight, which aired new episodes from March through May, as well as Star Trek: Discovery, which hadn’t released new episodes since February but managed to still sustain demand in the market.
Devices used to access TV content in Germany

Our global TV demand report also includes a section on how audiences’ TV series consumption by device varies in Germany, including a breakdown of age and gender.

Our observations:

  • Germany drove one of the higher responses for “TV with Cable and/or satellite,” while every other device option response was at least 60% less.
  • Across the board, men use the devices more than women to engage with TV content. This is especially true for tablets and Smart TV both at around 75% male.
  • In Germany, Cable TV has a somewhat even distribution across ages. Watching on a laptop/ desktop or mobile device however skews 18-24 or 25-34 brackets.
