Pre-Roll Ads Are Re-Purposed TV, Except No One Watches Them

Blog, Online Advertising, Online Video 12 Comments

Problem

The most dominant form of online video advertising is still a nuisance to a large portion of consumers, according to a study* from analytics firm TubeMogul.

Right now pre-rolls are largely dominated by marketers attempting to monetize old TV creative, which exists in abundance, and which can be repurposed for online ads with relative ease. To consumers this is nothing more than the next generation of pop-up ads.

Just how bad is it, you ask? Read more

What’s the killer app for TV? How About TV?!

Blog 2 Comments

Turns out people watch more television than they’d like to admit. A lot more.

From The Ad Contrarian via the Economist:

…one of the oddest and most consistent findings of television research: that people seem unaware of their own behaviour. In surveys they almost always underestimate how much television they watch, and greatly overstate the extent to which they watch video in any other form. In particular, they underestimate their consumption of live television… a 27-year-old man, claimed to watch recorded television 90% of the time. In fact he watched live TV 69% of the time.

Efforts to improve the TV-watching experience have often gone wrong because they took people at their word. The past ten years have seen a parade of websites and set-top boxes—Apple TV, Boxee, Joost, Roku—offering a huge range of content and interactive features. All promised to deliver TV the way people (that is, individuals) really want it…. Efforts to turn TVs into personal e-mail devices and home-shopping outlets have fared no better. “The killer application on television turns out to be television,” says Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO of the Digital TV Group.

It always amazes us when people say “they don’t watch TV anymore.” Now we know why.
