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
The number of North American households with a smart TV will reach 87 million by 2016, according to new research from Parks Associates, which today released a new whitepaper "Connected TV Environments: The Next Iteration of TV Advertising." This whitepaper, commissioned by Rovi, examines new opportunities in advertising based on the growing adoption and usage of connected TV platforms in the U.S. and Western Europe.
"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:
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.
