80% of Connected TV Viewers Stream Shows & Movies on Their TV

Viewers Watch CTV Advertising on Their Home Theater Systems

Advertisers have been unsure of what sort of experience Connected TV would provide viewers. It wasn’t clear which devices would dominate the CTV space — would the mobility aspect lead to more viewers watching on phones and tablets? Would more people stream over their desktops? As CTV becomes a bigger part of everyday media consumption, the answer is clear: viewers watch CTV at home on their TVs.

Advertisers can now bank on the fact viewers will engage their ads in the same environment they watch traditional TV. When it comes to advertising experiences, it’s hard to beat one in which people watch on a home theater system. Advertisers can now leverage a superior viewing experience alongside CTV advertising’s other advantages, which include shorter ad breaks as well as superior targeting and analytics, to maximize the impact of their budget.
