Nielsen examines viewing habits in 'Zero TV' households

Nielsen examines viewing habits in 'Zero TV' households | On-Demand Internet Television | Scoop.it
Measurement firm Nielsen has begun tracking the viewing habits of some 5 million American households that receive entertainment on Internet-connected devices and television sets.

 

 

Measurement firm Nielsen has begun tracking the viewing habits of some 5 million American households that receive entertainment on Internet-connected devices and television sets.

It's a group Nielsen dubs the "Zero TV" households, though that fails to precisely describe this group of viewers who are mainly younger than age 35 and childless. The vast majority -- some 75% -- own at least one television, but these sets are connected to the Internet, not to a cable or satellite service. 

 

These nontraditional TV viewers surveyed as part of the latest Cross-Platform Report from Nielsen cited cost and lack of interest as the main reasons for not subscribing to a traditional pay TV service.

 

It remains to be seen whether this group, referred to by some industry observers as the "never-connecteds," will forgo cable or satellite subscriptions as they age, buy homes and raise families.

 

"You do have to sit back and say, 'Is it a life stage? You're younger, you don't quite have the economic means. Does this mean you'll never get that traditional pipeline to content?' " said Dounia Turrill, senior vice president of insights at Nielsen Co. "That's a longitudinal look that we need to be aware of and we'll keep an eye on."

 

Nearly half of the "Zero TV" homes -- 48% -- watch TV shows through online subscription services like Netflix, Hulu Plus or Amazon Prime. More than two-thirds say they get their video on a constellation of devices that include their computers, Internet-connected TVs, smartphones and tablets, Nielsen found.

Nielsen said last month that it would expand its definition of "television" households to reflect the new ways consumers get their entertainment, including measuring viewing on Internet-connected TVs in the home.

 

"Evolving the definition of the traditional television household is really critical at this juncture with the proliferation of content that is delivered to the home in different ways," Turrill said.

This isn't just about movies but also your average television show. I personally watch television online only. So this is a growing segment of people watching media as it has been for the past five years. Interesting!

Switched On: A 4K in the road

Switched On: A 4K in the road | On-Demand Internet Television | Scoop.it

 

The past decade has now seen at least three industry-wide technologies vie for the future of television - HD, 3D and now 4K or UHD.

 

 

 

The first of these - HD - represented a massive change for television that affected nearly every aspect of the TV experience from how it was captured to how it was consumed.

 

A decade later, it is nearly impossible to purchase a TV that does not support high-definition.

 

The second - 3D - was a mixed bag. While the technology became commonplace on high-end TVs, it has remained relevant for only a small fraction of programming.

 

The question, then, is which of these paths, if either, 4K will follow.

Brand storytelling is hardly a new idea. One of the earliest examples is the Wishbook from Sears and Roebuck. In 1895, the Sears Wishbook hit rural Americans mailboxes offering a new concept – a variety store that allowed frontier families to order everything from guns and garments to a Stradivarius violin – for $6.10!

 

Canon’s Project Imagin8ion with Ron Howard

...Last year, Canon charged legendary film director Ron Howard to create a short film based on photos submitted by Canon users. The goal was to build a story from eight photos chosen for setting, time, character, mood, relationship, goal, obstacle, and the unknown. The result is a moody and moving short film that explores dealing with the death of a parent from childhood to adulthood....

Online-Only TV Shows Join Fight for Attention | NYTimes.com

Online-Only TV Shows Join Fight for Attention | NYTimes.com | On-Demand Internet Television | Scoop.it

In the television pilot that Cheyenne Jackson taped recently, he played an aggressive young news anchor whose ascendancy threatened an older colleague. It was a fitting metaphor for the industry itself, because while Mr. Jackson had taped pilots for ABC, NBC and USA before, this was his first time doing one for a new challenger to those alphabet networks: Amazon.com.

 

When Amazon sizes up the television marketplace, it sees opportunity. Internet-delivered TV, which until recently was unready for prime time, is the new front in the war for Americans’ attention spans. Netflix is following up on the $100 million drama “House of Cards” with four more series this year. Microsoft is producing programming for the Xbox video game console with the help of a former CBS president. Other companies, from AOL to Sony to Twitter, are likely to follow.

 

The companies are, in effect, creating new networks for television through broadband pipes and also giving rise to new rivalries — among one another, as between Amazon and Netflix, and with the big but vulnerable broadcast networks as well.

 

“These are the very first lab tests in a very grand experiment,” said Jeff Berman, the president of BermanBraun, a media company that makes programming for NBC, HGTV, AOL and YouTube, among others.

Are you ready for UHDTV? Manufacturers are, and they are ramping up for the next phase in how we consumer video, both for mobile TV and via big screens.

 

There are some hurdles, and although it seemingly took the better part of decade for the U.S. to adopt to 720p/1080p HDTV, the next wave of ultra resolution definitely seems like it is on the fast track.

Television's Future Has a Social Soundtrack | Harvard Business Review

Television's Future Has a Social Soundtrack | Harvard Business Review | On-Demand Internet Television | Scoop.it

...Television is undergoing an analogous transformation. Although we sometimes watch with family or friends, we mostly experience TV in relative social isolation. We are disconnected from most of the people watching with us, deaf to the roar of the crowd during a game or the laughter of the audience after a punch line. We have learned to suppress our urge to talk about what moves us, settling instead for chance meetings at the water cooler the day after.

 

But all that has changed with the sudden rise of realtime social media, particularly Twitter. Just in the United States, tens of millions of people are talking to each other as they watch TV. This year's Super Bowl alone spurred over 24 million tweets. After 80 years of sequestered viewing, television audiences worldwide have forged Twitter into a social soundtrack for TV. If you are not part of the soundtrack yet, chances are that you will be soon....
