Nearly 70 million U.S households will have smart TVs by 2017

Parks Associates Senior Analyst moderating panel at Advertising Week

Heather Way, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates, is moderating the session "Smart TV Rising" at Advertising Week on Wednesday, September 25, 2:30-3:15 P.M. in NY Times Center Hall.

According to Parks Associates research, there will be 175 million online video users in the U.S. in 2013, rising to 191 million by 2017, at which time there will be nearly 70 million smart-TV households. Parks Associates advertising research finds 25% of smart-TV app users recall seeing an in-app ad and 84% responded to that ad, the highest response rates to app advertising among current connected CE platforms.

"The TV is still the most-popular and most-used platform for video viewing—over 40% of TV owners watch more than 10 hours of video per week on the device," Way said. "The rise of OTT video viewing on smart TVs presents a new channel for content owners to sustain and grow their viewing audience, particularly in a marketplace that continually propagates fragmentation. The ability to leverage the mass reach of the first screen and its interactive components drives the scale and performance of a video asset."

Advertising Week is the world’s premier annual gathering of marketing and communications leaders each year in New York City. With more than 200 distinct events, The Week is a hybrid of thought leadership Seminars featuring the industry’s best and brightest and engaging special events which galvanize targeted constituencies.
