Global TV viewing still skews to live watching

  • A global poll conducted by Ipsos OTX on the TV viewing habits of watchers found that around 86% of viewing is still live.
  • On the streaming side, 27% of respondents watched TV via computer, while 16% used the TV to watch Internet video.
  • No surprise, but the younger demographics were more likely to use mobile and handheld devices to watch TV.
  • The results. which included polling in 20 different nations, is supportive of the idea that the pay-TV industry has a long way to go before crumbling in global markets. Dish Network (DISH +1.8%) and DirecTV (DTV +1.4%) in particular have been tapped to see global growth sustain.
