There’s just way to much to stream

Streaming TV has become increasingly overwhelming for consumers, with Nielsen's new data revealing that US viewers now spend an average of 10 minutes and 30 seconds searching for content, up from 7 minutes in the past four years.

Key Points:

1. Content Search Challenges:

  • US consumers spend an average of 10 minutes and 30 seconds searching for something to watch.

  • This is an increase of over 3 minutes compared to four years ago.

  • 1 in 5 consumers (20%) give up entirely on finding content.

2. Rise of content availability:

  • Available streaming programming has grown significantly.

  • In July 2021, there were 1.9 million video titles available across TV landscapes in the US, UK, Canada, Mexico, and Germany.

  • By now, the number of total titles has increased to 2.7 million.

3. Way to many streaming options:

  • Audiences in the US, UK, Canada, Mexico, and Germany have access to nearly 40,000 channels, aggregators, and streaming services to choose from.

  • Approximately 80% of these options are available in the US.

4. Viewership Trends:

  • Despite the hype around original content, acquired shows from linear TV drive the majority of streaming viewership.

  • Nearly two-thirds of streaming time in the US is spent on shows that originally aired on traditional TV.

5. Shift towards Ad-Supported Viewing:

  • Subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) viewing has decreased and now constitutes around half of all streaming watching.

  • Ad-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) has grown and accounts for about one-quarter of TV viewing.

  • AVOD services are projected to generate $91 billion, while free, ad-supported streaming (FAST) is anticipated to reach $18 billion in revenue by 2028 (Digital TV Research).

These trends highlight the challenges of content discovery, the vast content landscape, and the growing preferences towards ad-supported streaming.

  • India's economy is expected to be between $33 trillion and $40 trillion by 2047.

  • The residential real estate sector may rise from $299 billion in 2018 to $3.5 trillion by 2047.

  • Office real estate is predicted to increase from $40 billion to $473 billion, and warehousing from $2.9 billion to $34 billion.
