Today In Communication History

On this date in 1941, Bulova Watch Company sponsored the first TV commercial in New York City, NY.

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new
homes with meters that record the channel being watched—but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.


He said it first....'Television'.

He said it first….’Television’.

In 1900, the term ‘television‘ is coined by Constantin Perskyi at the International Electricity Congress, part of the 1900 Paris Exhibition.

Quote Of The Day
‘If you invest in growth before you have retention, you’re renting users, not acquiring them.’
Gillian Morris

U.S. Adults Consume an Entire Hour More of Media Per Day Than Last Year
If you feel like you’re spending more time than ever before watching and streaming content, you’re right. U.S. adults spent 10 hours, 39 minutes a day consuming media in the first quarter of 2016. That’s up a full hour from the first quarter of 2015, and it’s thanks to a substantial increase in smartphone and tablet usage, according to Nielsen’s Q1 2016 Total Audience Report.

In what Nielsen is calling “an important milestone,” half of all TV households now have access to streaming video on demand such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime—equal to the number of homes with DVRs.

In the first quarter of 2016, daily time spent using smartphones to consume media among U.S. adults (18+) shot up 60 percent—from 62 minutes a year earlier to 99 minutes per day. At the same time, live TV dropped 1 percent, declining about three minutes on average, from four hours 34 minutes in Q1 2015 to four hours 31 minutes, and compared with four hours 51 minutes in the first quarter of 2014.

Nielsen said the number of cable homes fell to 99.225 million from 100.774 million a year ago. The number of broadband-only homes rose to 3.9 million from 3.1 million a year ago. And the number of broadcast only homes rose to 13.3 million from 12.5 million a year ago.

So what’s hot and what’s not?

According to an article by Bill Cromwell, MediaLife (062816), Live television viewing has fallen over recent years. People are still using those TVs. They’re just using them in different ways. The latest total audience report from Nielsen, which offers a quarterly snapshot of media usage habits, shows that people are increasing the amount of time they spend with their TVs for purposes other than watching live television. Use of devices connected to the internet is way up. Viewership of live TV is down.

There are also a few forms of media that are not really up or down, but rather holding steady. At a time of great turmoil for media, that’s perhaps the most some media can hope for.

What’s Hot Media?
Subscription Video On Demand
Half of households now subscribe to SVOD services such as Netflix and Amazon, or about the same percent who own DVRs. Penetration has soared 19 percent from last year.
Smart TVs
Smart TVs had the biggest year-to-year surge in penetration, up 43% from last year. Nearly a quarter of the population has these TVs, which can hook up to the internet.
While smartphones may be ubiquitous, tablets continue to grow. More than half the population now owns one, up 17% from last year.
At this point, there are very few people not using HDTV, just 6%. Still, it grew 4% from last year.

What Not Hot Media?
When you can log onto Amazon and rent the latest movie from the comfort of your couch, it’s going to have a negative impact on the use and purchase of DVDs, which were down 3 percent in first quarter.
Gaming consoles
Gamers remain rabid and dedicated to their pursuits, but penetration of gaming consoles fell 4%, Nielsen found, to 44%.
Live TV
Viewership of live TV has dropped by 20 minutes per day since 2014, to a still-substantial four hours and 31 minutes.
People still use DVRs, of course, but their penetration has leveled off. We’ve likely reached a saturation point, with 50% of TV households owning a time-shifting device.
Radio listening per day has inched down by two minutes since 2014, to one hour and 52 minutes per day.

Survey: 42% Of Smartphone Users Upgrade After 3+ Years
Smartphone owners are waiting longer to update their hardware, with 42% saying they go three or more years before replacing their phone and 30% reporting they upgrade every two years, a Fluent survey indicates. According to a Gallup survey, 54% of people wait until their phone is not functioning before they buy a new one.
