Despite the popularity of online TV, a German study has found television sets remain the most popular device for watching series or movies. The study by the Central Association of the Electrical Engineering and Electronics Industry (ZVEI) found that 94 percent of Germans use a television set to watch programmes. By comparison, 78 percent use their computer, PC or laptop and 65 percent used their smartphone. Among television set users, around 50 percent had a HD flatscreen TV with Wi-Fi or other internet connection. A further 43 percent had a HD flatscreen without any internet functions.
