It’s the end of the year and time to look back on the reports released through The Home Technology Monitor™, our syndicated series of reports on media ownership, usage, and attitudes. What were the most important – or at least most notable – insights which came out of 2014? In no particular order, here’s what I nominate:
|Netflix viewers||Hulu Plus viewers||Amazon Prime viewers|
|Typically watch streaming service on a connected TV set||52%||66%||47%|
|Roku users||Apple TV users||Chromecast users|
|Cord-cut or cord-slice because of digital media player use||37%||28%||29%|
|Netflix viewers||Hulu Plus viewers||Amazon Prime viewers||Roku users||Apple TV users||Chromecast users|
|Ranking of “live TV” in hierarchy||#2||#1||#1||#2||#2||#1|
|All HHs||African-American HHs||Hispanic HHs||HHs w/income <$30k|
