Substantial Increase in Online Video
Digital platforms dominate entertainment consumption trends, and Online Video has seen a substantial increase from 2020 – 2022.
Adopting Ad-Supported Streaming
In good news for marketers, Americans are adopting ad-supported streaming services at a faster rate than non-ad subscription services.
Short-form Videos Surging
Short-form videos are surging amidst consumers, delivering concise and engaging content that captures attention in a short time span.
Audio Streaming is Growing
And it’s not just streaming video that’s rising – audio streaming is growing at a similar pace!
The optimal mix of platforms/tactics really depends on the target audience. Targeting users according to their behaviors also proves successful. Streaming offers businesses ways to expand reach and optimize outcomes.
Traditional TV Holding Its Ground
But even though more streaming services have sprung up and digital/CTV is passing 50% total hours of viewership, traditional (linear) TV is still holding its ground!
