Did you know that connected consumers across APAC are watching more video content than ever before, according to the findings from Kantar TNS’s Connected Life . The study reveals that people are consuming a wide variety of online video – from online TV or subscription services like Netflix, to free video on platforms such as YouTube and via social content that appears in their social feeds.
Knowing your customers is one of the most important parts of your business, if you are an operator trying to hold on to your customers or you are looking to attract new ones.
The information that is beneficial to you in the process of becoming Viewers’ First Choice is for sure:
The results reveal that traditional, live-broadcast TV content is still alive and well, with 77 % of connected consumers in Asia Pacific still tuning into traditional TV, watching on average 2 hours every day. This online video consumption is incremental, meaning that people are watching it in addition to their existing TV viewing habits.
The type of content that people are seeking out is also evolving. Popular video content no longer has to be professionally produced, with one in three (33 %) connected consumers saying that most of the content that they watch online is produced by ‘people like me’ or celebrities. People are also open to video content from brands, with 27 % of connected consumers watching this on a weekly basis.
Today is important not only to understand the habits but to know your customers. Many assume it’s only young people who are spending a lot of time watching online content, however older generations are not getting left behind. The study found that older Baby Boomers (55-65 years old) in emerging APAC markets watch 1.4 hours of online video daily, just less than the 1.7 hours being watched by young Millennials (16-24 years old).
