VideoNuze Podcast #275: Recent Data Highlights Major Changes in Video Industry

VideoNuze.com Analysis - Fri, 05/29/2015 - 08:27

I'm pleased to present the 275th edition of the VideoNuze podcast with my weekly partner Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia.

We all know the video industry is undergoing unprecedented changes. To make things more tangible, in this week's podcast, we discuss recently released data that we believe illustrates well how different the industry and viewers' behaviors are today vs. just a few years ago.

In particular, we highlight connected TV adoption data from Leichtman Research Group, long-form/live viewing data from FreeWheel, shifting media consumption data from GfK/IAB, and video delivery forecasts from Cisco.

The overarching takeaway is that in the past 5 years, online video has evolved from a short-form, lower-quality, desktop-based experience to a long-form, TV-level experience that's now mainstream in the living room. As this trend gains further momentum, there are huge implications for TV networks, pay-TV operators and advertisers.

Game of Screens: Will TV Remain King?

VideoNuze.com Analysis - Thu, 05/28/2015 - 06:58

Which episode of Game of Thrones are you on?

It's a question that would have barely made sense just a couple years ago. But now, as we take advantage of so many new devices and services for consuming TV, the very way we think about television is changing.

Game of Thrones is one of the most talked about shows on TV at the moment, and some of us are enjoying the beginning of the highly anticipated season 5. (Some of us are still trying to catch up on season 4.) The premiere alone drew 7.9 million viewers, making this the most watched episode of HBO's most watched series ever. But the story isn't just about how many people are watching; it's also about how they are watching. Game of Thrones gives us a great snapshot of the change in the way people watch TV.

Connected TVs Now in 56% of U.S. Homes, Up from 24% in 2010

VideoNuze.com Analysis - Wed, 05/27/2015 - 07:23

A new survey from Leichtman Research Group has found that 56% of American homes now have at least one TV connected to the Internet, more than double the 24% level from 2010. 29% of American homes now have TVs connected using multiple devices.

LRG did not break out the type of connected TV devices used, but last week, FreeWheel's Q1 '15 Video Monetization Report found that Roku has a 43% share, followed by Apple TV (23%), gaming consoles (20%), Chromecast (12%) and Smart TV (2%).

LRG also found that 29% of adults watch online video on their TVs at least weekly, almost 6x the 5% level in 2010, underscoring how rapidly this has become a mainstream activity. 33% of adults watch video on non-TV devices on a daily basis, with 58% watching on non-TV devices on a weekly basis.
