I’m pleased to present the 484th edition of the VideoNuze podcast, with my weekly partner Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia.
On this week’s podcast we discuss newly released industry data from FreeWheel’s Q2 ’19 Video Marketplace Report, Roku’s Cord-Cutting 2019 study and Manatt-Vorhaus Advisors Digital Strategy study.
Each contains insights about the video industry and fast-changing viewer behaviors. In particular, we focus on the dominance of connected TVs in video ad views, new trends in cord-cutting and the rising usage of smartphones among younger audiences.

Streaming services have long been linked to cord-cutting, and new research from Manatt and Vorhaus Advisors provides another window into the relationship. Among those likely to cut the cord in the next year, nearly half (44%) said that after doing so they would rely on SVOD services like Netflix or Hulu.
And when asked their reasons for going without pay-TV service, “too expensive’ topped the list of reasons cited (as expected) with 47%, followed by “I don’t watch enough TV to make it worth it” (30%). But then the next 3 reasons all relate to the strength of streaming services: “I am satisfied with online streaming options on my TV,” (24%) “I have enough entertainment options on the Internet” (23%) and I can watch the TV shows and movies I like on the Internet” (21%).
