The technical devices and services that can be used for news consumption continue to differentiate. At the same time, the different options for news usage converge by allowing very different types of services to be used with a single terminal. For the annual Reuters Institute Digital News Report, which the Oxford-based Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism conducted for the first time in 2012, surveys were conducted simultaneously in 38 countries in 2019 to identify general trends as well as national peculiarities. The Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans- Bredow-Institut has been responsible for the German part of the study as a cooperation partner since 2013. Thereby it is supported by the state media authorities and the ZDF.
