What’s your go-to device of choice for watching your favorite show? Device proliferation has afforded more choice than ever before, but TV remains the preferred device—and by a wide margin according to global online respondents in Nielsen’s Digital Landscape Survey.
The video landscape is in a time of major flux, with digital viewing on the rise, advertisers seeking integrated campaigns and yet TV networks still holding most of the cards. But with the emergence of new technologies—and new measurement capabilities—video advertising is poised for change.
Based on 70 years of watching what consumers experience, and how they buy, how they act and what they do based on their consumption of content, we see a seismic shift coming in the next five years. Nowhere is this more acute than when it comes to television and video consumption.
While the DVR has become a staple in 50 percent of U.S. homes and has helped changed the way consumers watch video, it’s not the only way consumers can watch on their own terms. Homes without the additional hardware can also watch on their own terms thanks to expanding VOD accessibility.
In the spectrum of evolving media, nothing is growing faster than the adoption of portable devices and the consumption of content on these devices. At the same time, traditional TV remains vibrant and continues to thrive.
