Connected TV platforms have positive impact on consumer advertising perceptions
New whitepaper from Parks Associates and Rovi analyzes video-viewing activities, ad recall and response, and second-screen activities for connected-TV households
"Connected TV systems have the ability to change viewer perceptions of advertising," said Heather Way, senior research analyst, Parks Associates. "These systems enable advertising to be integrated into device navigation and content search, engaging consumers at a point of high receptivity and enabling them to immerse themselves in a rich brand experience. As a result, over 50% of U.S. connected-TV households surveyed by Rovi consider these ads as content, containing useful and valuable information, and they are much more likely to remember and click on these ads."
Other key data points:
- 55% of connected-TV households earn at least $75,000 annually and own 11 Internet-enabled devices on average
- 72% of connected-TV owners say the connected platform makes watching TV more convenient, and 65% said the technology makes the TV experience more enjoyable
- 49% of connected-TV viewers depend on the platform when they are unsure what to watch
- 58% of Rovi-served connected households indicate that advertising in the connected platform is an effective medium to communicate with viewers in the household
"Consumers are more receptive to advertising that takes this brand-infused approach," said Jeff Siegel, senior vice president, Worldwide Advertising, Rovi Corporation. "Advertising on connected TVs that provides more immersive brand experiences has a positive impact on consumers. Over 80% of our connected-TV households state they consider these advanced campaigns to be valuable sources of brand information."
Connected-TV households in this whitepaper are defined as households with either a smart TV or Blu-ray player connected to the Internet. Adding connectivity to these devices has opened these screens to interactive advertising, new program guides, and opportunities to promote premium services such as video-on-demand. Parks Associates research forecasts over 70 million Blu-ray players, the vast majority Internet-connectable, will be sold worldwide in 2016.
The whitepaper, available on Rovi's and Parks Associates' websites, highlights video-viewing activities, ad recall and response triggers, and second-screen activities for connected-TV households in the U.S., the U.K., Canada, and Germany.
