Evolving Television Consumption and Advertising Trends Explained in New Infographic from Koeppel Direct

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2017) - With Response Expo 2017 quickly approaching, direct response agency Koeppel Direct has published an in-depth infographic about the evolution of television viewing habits and new trends in TV advertising.

The infographic, Switching Channels: The Evolution of Television, Binge Watching & Advertising, offers key takeaways for brands to maximize their ad spend and effectively communicate with their audience in a changing landscape.

Statistics illustrated in the infographic show there are TV viewing preferences and differences among generations. Baby boomers prefer to watch live programming, while Gen X records shows on DVR to watch on their own time. Millennials like to stream shows on mobile devices -- anytime and anywhere.

While each generation consumes media differently, they all have one habit in common: binge watching. In fact, 70% of Americans binge watch TV shows, with an average of five episodes per binge session. While the habit was unheard of a decade ago, binge watching today is popular among all demographics -- baby boomers (58%), Gen X (76%), and millennials (84%). With instant episodes and ad-free options, Netflix remains a top subscription service with an average of 568 total hours streamed per subscriber.

As more consumers opt for subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) services, advertisers are required to rethink their audience targeting and direct response strategy. More brands are shifting from traditional TV ads towards digital ads. Cross-channel video advertising -- such as in-stream, display, mobile and programmatic ads -- now play an increasing role in brands' strategies.
