Quick Facts about the German Media System

Cloak
 Summary
  • Long history of printed press; the media system especially influenced by the experience of the Nazi-dictatorship and the German division

  • Germany’s demographics are changing due to an aging society and migration; representation and diversity in the media is a challenge

  • Germany has a dual broadcasting system: a range of public-funded channels, free from state control and commercially financed private broadcasters

  • Newspapers are widespread, but struggle with declining sales due to the rise of online media

  • Television is the most popular medium

  • Germany has a liberal legal framework for the press & ranks 12th in the press freedom index of reporter without borders

  • The media landscape is dominated by serveral media companies: Bertelsmann, Axel Springer, Pro7Sat1 AG and Funke Mediengruppe

  • The Journalistic profession is free of access, but worsening market conditions and an increasing workload due to cross media make it harder to get into the field

  • Germans use Social Media rather conservatively and there is a widespread skepticism about data security
