Just finished reading a report from eMarketer about future of sharing video online. You can find the full article here: http://www.emarketer.com. (Subscription required. (c) eMarketer Inc.)
The study cited statistics that indicate that online video in the US is now as big as network TV.
The study notes that the age of online video viewers trends younger: 82% of teens (16-to-17-year-olds) and young adults (18 to 24) streamed video, compared with 73% of Generation X (25 to 34) and 65% of older boomers (55 to 64) who said they watched.
Younger people will educate older generations how to watch, where to watch, and what’s worth watching online. The day is coming soon when my family will look at our television as merely a big screen monitor attached to our computer. We already use it that way a great deal.
