Reaching Ad-Free Streamers
TVB Members: view the full study [member login required request it now]
With an increasingly diverse media landscape, it’s important for advertisers to take every opportunity they can to connect with consumers. TVB’s 2021 Media Comparisons study found that 42% of A18+ watched TV programs or movies on streaming platforms without advertisements. Obviously, advertisers are unable to air their ads to these viewers, so the TVB zeroed in on ad-free streamers’ media usage to analyze other ways for advertisers to reach them.
Among the highlights:
- Ad-free streamers do spend more time streaming than the average adult, but linear TV still dominates.
Linear TV, specifically Broadcast TV, has the highest reach among ad-free streamers of all other media platforms.
- Among key demos and categories, the combination of Broadcast TV and Broadcast TV websites/apps allows advertisers to reach the majority of the viewers that stream without ads.
- This group places the most trust in local broadcast TV news of all media platforms, while local broadcast TV websites/apps has the highest trust of digital platforms.
