A global study by Nielsen found that 16 percent of Germans pay to use a VoD (SVoD) service, 5 percent higher than the European average. It also found that 41 percent of Germans use cable TV, and 18 percent use satellite TV. The study shows that streaming is not replacing classic linear TV viewing in Germany, but is complementing it. More than one third (36%) of Germans use VoD services, with 68 percent streaming VoD services over a computer, 46 percent using a smart TV, and 41 percent streaming with a tablet.
