Some 93 percent of Millennials buy some form of content, a study by the American Press Institute finds. The bad news for “press” entities is that most of that spending is for video or audio entertainment products, not “news.”
The two most popular types of paid subscriptions or content regularly used by Millennials are those that access online movies and TV (77 percent) and cable television (69 percent).
A majority of Millennials also use paid content for music (54 percent) and video games (51 percent).
The most popular paid news subscriptions or content regularly used by Millennials are print magazines (30 percent) and print newspapers (29 percent).
Fewer than 20 percent of Millennials regularly use paid access to a digital news app (19 percent), a digital newspaper (15 percent), a digital magazine (15 percent), or an email newsletter (15 percent).
