YouTube Usage Surges

by | Feb 7, 2018

YouTube video hourly consumption has risen by around 30% for each of the last four months, but it still represents a fraction of total TV viewing, states MediaPost, which added that analyzing data from Nielsen Digital Content Ratings, Pivotal Research Group finds that “YouTube usage was up 28% in January versus the same month a year ago — to 177 million hours per day, or 5.3 billion hours on a monthly basis.

“This followed 30% gains each for December and November and a 28% increase during October.

“Pivotal says that adding in consumption by those under 18 years of age on mobile devices and internet-connected devices “would probably boost consumption volumes by around 20%, or up to around 6.5 billion person-viewing hours per month.

“YouTube accounts for 10% of streaming TV consumption between late June and mid-September — just about 1% of total TV consumption. Pivotal says YouTube does not take any significant share of traditional big TV advertisers’ budgets.”
