Nielsen: Time Spent Watching Connected TVs Jumped by 1 Billion Hours Thanks to Coronavirus

Parks Associates, in a new paper called "COVID-19 and the Dramatic Increase of Video Consumption," finds that the "Primary Video Device to Stream Online Videos," for more than a quarter of connected homes, is the smart TV, followed by the streaming media player and then the computer.

"Just as some stabilization appeared evident, the COVID-19 crisis introduced yet more turmoil," David Drury, Parks' research director, said in the release. "The pandemic has certainly increased demand and fueled higher levels of video consumption, but also has disrupted video production and distribution significantly. Production of many new originals are on hold, and major studio titles have released directly to the home, threatening the long-term viability of the theater-release model. It has never been more important for industry players to track users’ viewing habits and preferences, and align service offerings to changing consumer needs and lifestyles."

Parks had found earlier this spring that two-thirds of online households had a connected device in their home.
