Sixty-four percent of those that have streamed live video have engaged with an ad—such as pre-roll or sponsored ads—while live streaming. Viewers in Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates are the most likely to engage with ads, according to IAB. The most common actions taken in response to seeing an ad during a live streaming session were remembering the brand that was advertised, clicking on the ad, and visiting the brands’ website. Ads within live streaming content were most frequently seen on social media platforms, gaming websites, and apps.

With the FIFA World Cup kicking off tomorrow, the study looked at live streaming intentions among those who want to watch. Overall, 65 percent of those who have live streamed video previously expect to live stream the matches predominantly on smartphones, versus 71 percent who anticipate watching live on linear TV. Slightly more than half plan to watch recorded games either online or on television. Sports fans in Brazil, China, Columbia, Peru, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States have the strongest likelihood to live stream the matches.
