Streaming viewing climbs as ads continue to falter

Streaming was found to be growing rapidly around the world. It showed that that two-thirds of global streaming viewing is now on demand while streaming viewing grew 58% year over year. Streaming viewing was up 63% in the Americas year over year and 65% in Europe. Streaming growth in Asia is slower, showing just a 10% increase year over year. Conviva noted that the connected TV market in Asia only accounts for 2% in viewing hours, but netted 243% growth year over year, as compared with growth on mobile or PC devices in Asia, which inched up just 11% and 6% respectively. – Joseph O’Halloran, Rapid TV News » https://ift.tt/39aujMl

‘The Witcher’ Breaks Netflix Series Viewership Records

Netflix, however, has changed the way it reports a “view.” Previously, the company counted a view as a member account watching at least 70 percent of one episode of a series or 70 percent of a feature film. Now, it is touting that viewers “chose to watch” a given title, meaning that member watched for as little as two minutes — “long enough to indicate the choice was intentional,” per a footnote in the earnings report. Under that measurement, the streamer says The Witcher is on track to have the biggest first season ever for a Netflix original. – Rick Porter, The Hollywood Reporter » https://trib.al/HYCqnK4

Pornhub Reveals Explicit Traffic Numbers

Every minute, on average, Pornhub has 80,032 visits from people who conduct 77,861 searches and view 219,985 videos. That’s 11,082 hours of video watched per minute, transferring 12,550 gigabytes of data. Fourteen videos are uploaded every minute, adding up to about 2.8 hours of video time per minute. These numbers may seem paltry compared with the number of videos viewed per minute on YouTube (4.5 million) or searches conducted on Google per minute (3.8 million), but they’re staggering when you consider they’re all for one site. – Eric Griffith, PCMag » https://ift.tt/2RxDRKc

Disney Plus Signed Up 24 Million U.S. Subscribers in November and Took Bite Out of Netflix, Analysts Estimate

While some research has indicated Disney Plus has had minimal impact on Netflix, Cowen & Co. estimated that Disney Plus will result in about 1 million additional U.S. Netflix customers cancelling service for the fourth quarter of 2019. All told, about 5.1 million Netflix subs in the States will bail in Q4, but the higher churn “appears manageable” for Netflix, Cowen analysts led by John Blackledge said in the report issued Wednesday. – Todd Spangler, Variety » https://ift.tt/2EyhJJy [photo: Disney+]
