  • Report: Online Video Viewing Edges Out Traditional TV Viewing in U.S.

    In August, hours spent watching online video per week edged out hours spent watching traditional TV on broadcast, cable, or satellite in the U.S., according to a new report from Limelight Networks. Respondents in the U.S. said they watched a record 9.3 hours of online video per week vs. 8.9 hours of traditional TV. Respondents in India, Singapore, Indonesia and France also watched more online video weekly, while those in Germany, U.K. and South Korea continue to watch more traditional TV.

    Only viewers in India (10.9 hours per week) and Indonesia (9.5 hours per week) watch more online video that U.S. viewers. Globally, online video consumption reached 7.9 hours per week in August, up 16% vs. 6.8 hours per week a year ago and 4.3 hours per week in 2016. 27% of respondents said they watch 10 hours or more of online video per week while 39% said they watch 4 hours per week or less.

  • VideoNuze Podcast #477: Reviewing New Industry Data on Streaming Devices and Consumption

    I’m pleased to present the 477th edition of the VideoNuze podcast, with my weekly partner Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia.

    Colin and I were both following new industry data out this week. First, Parks Associates shared insights on the streaming media player market, which surprised both of us as having essentially flatlined since last year, with Roku and Amazon now having 70% combined market share. By contrast, Colin notes that recent comScore data showed smart TV sales continuing to grow strongly.

    Then we shift to reviewing data from a new global survey released by Limelight Networks, showing the U.S. leading 8 other countries with 42% daily streaming and downloading activity. The survey also revealed that nearly 82% of 26-35 year old respondents are streaming or downloading on a weekly basis.

    We also provide a little commentary upfront on AT&T’s plan to drop the DirecTV Now name, since we just speculated on AT&T’s video plans on last week’s podcast.
