Parks Associates: U.S. Households Consuming 43.5 Hours Of Video Per Week Across All Viewing Devices

At NAB Show today, Parks Associates released new research, The Viewer Journey: Navigating Streaming Options, revealing U.S. Internet households now consume 43.5 hours of video per week on average across all viewing devices, an increase of more than six hours from 37.2 hours in 2020.

“Video-viewing households report watching on average more than 21 hours per week on a TV, accounting for half of their viewing hours,” said Sarah Lee, Parks Associates research analyst. “Video consumption on a cell phone continues to rise — excluding social video sources, U.S. internet households spend 6.5 hours per week watching video a smartphone and 3.9 hours on a tablet. TVs are still the main video-viewing device, but platform usage continues to diversify.”

“The flexibility and convenience that on-demand services offer is highly appealing to viewers, but many households enjoy a balance between finding something to watch and watching what they find,” Lee said. “Given the popularity of FAST and user-generated content, consumers may soon decide they do not need to subscribe to as many services as they do now.”
