the traditional TV, it is Possible that the best-functioning social program in Germany. The Numbers from Media Control to the average viewing time per day show an unbroken Trend to more and more TV time for people over the age of 65 years: 287 minutes in the year 2005 there was an increase of 335 minutes in the year 2018. 335 minutes of mean per capita five hours and 35 minutes TV – apparently a job that can fill the day to a large extent. If you look at the daily TV usage in the German between 50 and 64 years of age, is also to be noted there is an enhanced contribution over the period between 2005 and 2018: Of 267 it went up to 297 minutes.
