Parks: Household Spending on Streaming Subscriptions Slumps

In the runup to a Sept. 19 webinar entitled "AVOD, FAST, Freemium: Effective Advertising in the New Video Landscape," Parks Associates is reporting that internet household spending on streaming subscription services has declined 25% to $73 per month versus $90 in 2021. 

"Leveraging data to provide relevant content and digital advertisements to keep viewers engaged is crucial, and tricky. Data is fragmented across operating systems and applications, and viewer consent is required," said Jennifer Kent, vice president pesearch, Parks Associates. "The next generation of TV and CTV advertising should not replicate traditional linear, pay-TV ad formats and models but offer interactive, actionable, secure, and enjoyable experiences that engage video viewers and attract ad dollars."

During the Sept. 19 webinar Parks Associates and Adeia will present research and insights from the just-published white paper, Overcoming Complexity: Advertising in a Fragmented Landscape, and discuss how advertising is evolving to accommodate new ad-supported streaming models and privacy practices for a more engaging and targeted experience.
