    29. 29 Japan: Device overlaps Japan is the least multiplatform country that we poll. Of those using devices for news, 31% use the smartphone and just 12% use a tablet. Almost six in ten (58%) only use the computer. A small minority are using two or three devices to access news each week
    30. Multiplatform world In general, we see that new devices are not replacing TV, radio or print, though usage patterns are changing and becoming more complex. In terms of weekly use, tablet and smartphone users consumers are still using TV news and reading newspapers. They may be using them less often and younger demographics are using traditional media such as TV news much less

Here the whole population is showing a flatter consumption curve, reflecting the wider take-up of internet and mobile technologies. In Finland, the main TV news shows are also spread throughout the evening, with bulletins at 6pm, 7pm, 8.30pm and 10pm, and the later bulletins capturing the main audience

What we then see is how much more disrupted traditional players are in some countries
    41. UK and Finnish brands suffering less disruption This chart shows just the countries at each end of the disruption scale and only shows traditional against digital born websites (eg Huffington Post, Yahoo and Google News) Q3.

Base: All markets 2014 – UK: 2082; Germany: 2063; Spain: 2017; Italy: 2010; France: 1946; Denmark: 2036; Finland: 1520; USA: 2197; Urban Brazil: 1015; Japan: 1973 Newspaper reach by country The newspaper industry has been most disrupted. But even here we see that cross platform reach (web and print) amounts to 75% or more in most countries. Only in the US and France are they struggling to top 50%
    44. 44 France: Overlaps in print and online French newspapers have traditionally mainly served better educated groups rather than mass market. Now they are struggling to attract a wider user base online. The French market is thus more open to disruption from the likes of Google News and online start ups like Le Huffington Post
    45. 45 USA: Overlaps in print and online US newspapers are still very reliant on traditional print readers. Many of those are older or using other sources online. Most US newspapers were locally based and as the internet opened up a market for national news brands they were unable to change fast enough. Newspapers have been left with just 33% of the online market – facing tough competition from broadcasters like CNN and new players like Yahoo and Huffington Post.
    46. 46 Denmark: Overlaps in print and online Newspapers in Denmark have transitioned most of their loyal readers to online with 83% combined reach and more than half reading in print and online every week. This puts them in a much stronger position than the newspaper sector in US and France
    47. 47 Finland: Overlaps in print and online Finnish newspapers have been most successful in transitioning readers to online services. This despite the presence of a strong public broadcaster. Finland has also persuaded the most people to pay for online news (14%)
