Viewers watch Connected TV because it's a better deal

 

Convenience, Price, and Content

Viewers know a good deal when they see one, which helps explain Connected TV’s growth over the past year. According to a recent Video Advertising Bureau survey, respondents stated the convenience, price, and content were the top reasons why they subscribe to CTV services.

While convenience and price are compelling reasons for viewers to tune into Connected TV, or even cut the cord from cable and satellite completely, the availability and quality of content cannot be overstated. Not only is traditional TV programming available, but so too are streaming-exclusives available only through CTV providers. Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon netted a combined 161 nominations for this year’s Emmy’s, suggesting that viewers seeking best-in-class programming have no choice but to get onboard with CTV.
