Younger viewers are now choosing VoD over Pay TV

To reach the next generation of tech-savvy viewers, advertisers who are looking to use TV need to bear in mind the preferences of the younger viewer for more flexible, content driven television.

Platforms such as Video on Demand have reshaped the way TV content is consumed, creating a generation of consumers who expect to watch what they want, when they want, on the device they choose.

Youtube is currently the most popular video app used by 60% of what’s known as the audience group ‘content connoisseurs’. These are typically young people in their 20’s or early 30’s who are wealthy, tech-savvy trendsetters, highly engaged with content.
