Of the US Millennials who watch Netflix, nearly half of them do at least some of their video viewing from a smartphone or tablet, according to new research.
The study, from comScore, found that in comparison, 36 percent of Netflix viewers who are 35-54 years old stream the popular service via mobile, while just 30 percent of the 55+ age group does so.
While it’s evident that Millennials are more comfortable consuming on mobile platforms than the older segments of the population, this data also shows how significant mobile has become with video streaming in general.
A large percentage of viewers overall are reaping the benefits of faster 4G connections and are now doing their more of their TV viewing on-the-go than ever before.
Given this shift in consumer behavior, accurate video measurement on mobile platforms is becoming an increasingly important issue in this new era of television viewing.
