Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

For Saturday, June 13, 2015 (Posted on June 14, 2015)
The Peacock Network went all hockey Saturday and finished #1. At 8P, Game #5 of the ‘2015 Stanley Cup’ saw the Chicago Blackhawks come one step closer to celebrating their first Stanley Cup victory at home in 77 years with a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning, in Tampa. The battle finished with an average 5.06 million viewers tuning in to prepare for the Chicago fans waving blue ‘BELIEVE’ towels on Wednesday night. Is there a parade coming to Grant Park? That would make Lloyd Pettit smile at the Big Hockey Rink in the Sky. Top local markets for Game 5 in metered-market households: Chicago (26.2), Tampa (14.3), Buffalo (7.1), Milwaukee (6.4), Minneapolis-St. Paul (5.4). Note: Due to the nature of live sports coverage, ratings for NBC (Hockey) and FOX (baseball) are tentative and likely to be adjusted in the final ratings.
The Tiffany Network finished #2 on Saturday with an all rerun schedule of programming. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Elementary finished with an average 2.18 million viewers for #2 in the time slot. At 9P, a rerun of ‘CSI’ finished with an average 3.34 million viewers, again finishing #2 in its time slot. Finally at 10P, a rerun of ’48 Hours’ finished with an average 4.55 million viewers, also #2 in the time slot. All in all, not bad for programs which we have seen before, in some cases, a number of times.
The Alphabet Network finished third but had some under performing programming. AT 8P, a rerun of ‘The Whispers’ finished with an average 1.81 friends and family, never a good sign for a network when the beginning programs falls to the bottom of the heap. Then at 9P, a two hour rerun of ‘In An Instant’ finished with an average 2.30 million viewers, edging out the average of baseball on FOX.
The Animal Network of Broadcast presented MLB on Saturday. With approximately 40% of the season completed, at 8P, ‘Major League Baseball’ regional coverage drew an average 2.11 million viewers. Overall, with all of the local and regional coverage, baseball was seen by more people on Saturday and any other televised sport. On Saturday, Toronto beat Boston, 5-4 in 11 innings as Loup gets the win (2-3); Rangers beat the Twins 7-4 as Lewis finishes 6-3; Pittsburgh beat the Phillies 4-3 as Cole goes 10-2; Cleveland beat Detroit, 5-4 as Carrasco finishes 8-5; Rays beat the White Sox in Tampa 5-4 as Boxberger goes is now 4-3; Nationals over the Brewers 7-2 as Nelson goes 3-7; Seattle 8-Astros 1; Braves beat the Mets 5-3 in 11 innings; Miami beat Colorado 4-1; St. Louis beat Kansas City in the Battle of Missouri 3-2; Baltimore beat the Yankees 9.-4; Cubs beat the Reds 4-3 as Motte goes 3-1; D’Backs beat the Giants 4-2 as Vogelsong goes to 4-5; Angels beat the A’s, 1-0 and the Padres beat the Dodgers, 2-1 as Greinke goes 5-2 for the season.

Digital/Mobile News In Australia
*Teens ‘Triple Screen’ While Watching TV
David Knox reported that 31% of “Online Australians” over the age of 16 say they have “Triple-Screened” their viewing: watching Television while they use two other screens such as a laptop, tablet or smartphones. Laptop / notebook computers are most popular for multi-screens, followed by smartphones, desktop computers and then tablets. More than one-third of multi-screeners say they do so daily and 85 per cent report doing so at least once a week. The practice is also highest amongst younger viewers than older.
But watching video is not amongst the most popular tasks on any of these screens, with popular tasks changing dependent on the device (and including outside of home use). The data has been released in the latest Multi-Screen Report (Q1 2015) from Regional TAM, OzTAM and Nielsen (numbers and methodology have not been supplied -“Online Australians” refers to those already connected to internet).
Television viewing remains the dominant screen for video use, at an average of 89 hours and 28 minutes -a drop of nearly 10 hours since late 2012 (NB: TV viewing increases in winter months). 91.6% of all broadcast TV viewing is Live, down from 93% two years ago. Timeshifted viewing comprised 8.4% of viewing up from 7% in mid 2013. 88.4 per cent of all video viewing took place on TV sets. PC / Laptop follows at 6.9%. Tablets in homes have tripled in three years, and internet-capable TVs have doubled in the same time.
Here are the results of the latest report:
The latest Australian Multi-Screen Report, from Regional TAM, OzTAM and Nielsen, and covering the first quarter of calendar 2015 – explores household take-up of new screen technologies and trends in how major age groups view broadcast television and other video across multiple screens. It also presents new findings about Australians’ claimed use of and attitudes towards various screen types: the devices they prefer to use for different activities, and the extent to which they use more than one screen simultaneously (‘multi-screening’).
Among the key trends:
· Television is still dominant. All age groups spend the majority of their viewing time watching broadcast television on in-home TV sets: across the population and screen types 88.4% of all viewing takes place on the TV set.
. In Q1 2015 Australians watched an average 89 hours and 28 minutes (89:28) of broadcast television – free-to-air and subscription channels – on in-home television sets each month (down from 93:16 in Q1 2014).
. The average weekly reach however for Australian broadcast television was little changed on the same quarter of 2014 and 2013, at 88−89% of the population.
. 22.158 million Australians watched broadcast television each month during Q1 2015.
· The way people use their television sets is changing. The proportion of time spent viewing live television has dropped gradually in each of the past five years, while playback viewing through the TV set within seven days of original broadcast continues to rise. Even so, 91.6% of all broadcast TV viewed on television sets is still watched at the time of original broadcast (live-to-air).
Meanwhile an increasing proportion of the time people spend with the TV now goes to activities other than watching broadcast television. This other TV screen use follows the take-up of internet-capable or ‘smart’ TVs – now in nearly one third of homes – along with growth in viewing of TV content between 8 and 28 days from original (live) broadcast. For example, in the four-week period 22 February – 21 March 2015 this 8-28 day playback viewing (which does not appear in the playback figures within OzTAM and Regional TAM Consolidated data) accounted for 1.66% of all TV viewing time across the day (up from 1.06% in the same four-week period a year ago).
· Australians’ use of connected mobile devices to watch video is growing but remains relatively small. Across the population as a whole watching video is not the primary activity Australians undertake on their mobile screens. 11.6% of all video viewing – both broadcast and non-broadcast content – happens on screens other than the TV.
- Viewing habits are evolving though, with people under age 35 in particular increasingly using internet-connected devices to watch video.
TECHNOLOGY IN AUSTRALIAN HOME
Smartphones have the fastest adoption rate: 77% of Australians aged 16+ now own one, up from 69% a year ago.
The rate at which households are introducing internet-capable TVs and tablets is slowing, now in 30% and 47% of homes, respectively.
Household personal video recorder (PVR) penetration has levelled off at 56%.
TIME SPENT VIEWING ON TELEVISIONS AND OTHER DEVICES
As Australians adopt new screens and technologies they have more choice as to what, when, where and how they watch TV and other video. This in turn affects the time people spend with these devices. Viewing habits are changing – notably with younger audiences who increasingly use internet-connected devices to watch TV and other video. People of all ages however still spend the majority of their viewing time watching broadcast television on in-home TV sets.
SIMULTANEOUS SCREEN USE
Nielsen’s annual Australian Connected Consumers report shows 75% of online Australians aged 16 and over say they ever ‘multi-screen’, that is, use an internet-connected device while watching television (74% a year ago.)
. Slightly more women say they have multi-screened than men (76% compared to 73%).
. More than one third of multi-screeners say they do so daily and 85% report doing so at least once a week.
. 31% of online Australians aged 16+ say they ‘triple-screen’ – up from 26% the previous year.
. Across the population people who multi-screen say they most often use their laptop/notebook computers for this activity, followed by smartphones, desktop computers and then tablets. Laptops are still dominant but mobile devices are now the second most used, in the past year overtaking the desktop PC.
. The activities people most often undertake on various devices differ and reflect both screen size and where the devices are used. For example the desktop or laptop computer are used at home and are still where much online access takes place. Smartphone use however reflects the fact they are most often used outside the home. People also use their smartphones to check social media more often than on other devices.
. Tablet activities are closer to those on desktop/laptops, as they too are widely used in the home. However search plays a more important role on tablets, along with updating or browsing social media and watching online video.
EVOLVING VIEWING PATTERNS BY AGE GROUP
The trends evident in recent years persist. For example while people aged 50+ watch the most TV on TV sets the time they spend watching any video on connected devices is increasing. And Australians under age 24 spend more than 50% of their total viewing time watching broadcast television on TV sets even though they are the heaviest viewers of video on connected devices.
Some of the more interesting trends include:
· Kids watch more broadcast television than teens and 18-24s, and watch more video on the internet than their 16-17 pear-old counterparts, adding an additional 1:03 per month doing so year-on-year.
(Note: multi-screening habits and top activities by connected device are available for audiences aged 16 and above).
· 92% of online 16-17 year-olds say they ever multi-screen: the highest of any age group.
· They most often use their smartphones when multi-screening, followed by laptops and desktops. Conducting a search and accessing social media are the top activities they use their smartphones for, then getting directions and emailing.
· Watching online video is the number one activity they use tablets for, third most common on computers and seventh on smartphones.
· 89% of online 18-24s say they ever multi-screen, with smartphones their preferred multi-screening device.
· Email and getting directions/maps are the most common online activities they claim to use their smartphones for; search on tablets and computers.
· Watching online video is now 18-24s’ third most common activity on computers, second on tablets and eighth on smartphones.
· 90% of online 25-34s report ever multi-screening, with 84% saying they do so at least monthly.
· 25-34s say they use smartphones most often to multi-screen, with laptops close behind. Desktops follow with tablets becoming increasingly popular.
· Watching online video is their second most common activity on tablets, seventh on desktops/laptops and tenth on smartphones.
· 82% of online 35-49s say they ever multi-screen and 74% say they do so at least monthly, which is stable year-on-year.
· 35-49s use their laptops most often to multi-screen, followed by smartphones; desktops and tablets are almost on par as the third most-used.
· Watching online video is 35-49s’ seventh most common self-reported activity on tablets, tenth on desktops/laptops and eleventh on smartphones.
· 65% of online Australians aged 50-64 report ever multi-screening – down slightly from 68% a year ago.
· Laptops are 50-64s’ key multi-screening device, followed by desktops, tablets and then the smartphone.
· Watching online video is 50-64s’ ninth most common self-reported activity on tablets, eleventh on computers, and twelfth on smartphones.
· 49% of online Australians aged 65 and over say they have ever multi-screened – the lowest percentage of any major age group.
· When they do multi-screen people 65+ use traditional computers most often, followed by tablets then smartphones.
· Viewing online video is their twelfth most common activity on smartphones, and eleventh on computers and tablets.
Regional TAM Chair and NBN Television CEO Deborah Wright commented: “The review of playback viewing beyond seven days that is featured within this latest Multi-Screen Report shows us that more Australians are viewing broadcast television content outside the seven-day window compared to previous years. Regional Australian households continue to consume more ‘live’ television than the national average but they have also shown growth year on year in the 8-28 day playback segment.”
OzTAM CEO Doug Peiffer said: “Australians now have a remarkable range of options for watching their favourite television programs. Overall, nine in ten people watch broadcast TV each week, averaging nearly three hours of ‘traditional’ TV viewing per day across the population. We continue to see Australians spend a little less time at the ‘full buffet’ of live linear television and a little more time viewing ‘a la carte’, watching their favourite TV shows when they want. Also, there is an increase in time shift viewing beyond seven days, as reported in this quarter. We’ll continue to keep an eye on this evolving behaviour.”
Craig Johnson, Head of Nielsen’s Reach Solutions, Southeast Asia, North Asia and Pacific said: “People are continuing to evolve the way they consume media and are leveraging technology more, and, in increasingly varied ways. The TV screen remains the core of this consumption and a key vehicle for advertisers to reach consumers. Playback continues to grow as does delayed viewing with an increase in 8-28 days, showing that people are more prepared than ever to watch content at their own convenience.”
SUMMARY OF KEY FINDINGS: Q1 (JANUARY – MARCH) 2015:
