  3. 3. Key insights •  TV Everywhere (TVE) viewing continues to shift to TV connected devices; Apple TV® and Roku® are enjoying similar growth rates (+18% in the last quarter alone). Apple® may be cannibalizing its own devices, with Apple TV® growing at the expense of iPad® and iPhone®: •  Consumers increased their frequency of viewing TV Everywhere (TVE), with an uptick in the most recent quarter resulting in a doubling of TVE viewing YOY. Q3 2015 is up 37% quarter-over-quarter (QOQ) following a Q2 slowdown; all key genres showed growth. •  The number of households using TV Everywhere (TVE) continues to grow, but slowly. Number of unique households is up 8% year-over-year (YOY). •  Teens & Toons is often consumed on mobile devices, particularly by Android® as opposed to iOS® users. Movies tend to be viewed on a bigger screen. •  In the broader video market, the overall mobile share of online video starts continues to grow (+13% YOY), with smartphone growth offsetting tablet decline.

  4. 4. TV EVERYWHERE TVE penetration of Pay-TV viewers continues to grow slowly 4 While active viewership grew 8% on a YOY basis, penetration among pay-tv subscribers remains in the 12-14% range. With fewer than 1 in 7 subscribing households using TVE, there remains substantial headroom to acquire new customers. ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  5. 5. Authenticated video viewing picked up steam during the 3rd quarter resulting in a 102% increase of TVE video streams from Sept. 2014. TV EVERYWHERE Authenticated video viewing doubled YOY 5 The growth continues after a Q2 dip, up 37% QOQ. Consumer engagement and loyalty, rather than customer acquisition, fuels industry growth. ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  6. 6. TV EVERYWHERE All key genres contributed to viewing growth 6 All genres show healthy growth, contributing to the 37% QOQ jump. The fastest growing was Movies, more than doubling since the last benchmark report. The start of football season, the return to school and new TV shows impacted individual genres positively. ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  7. 7. TV EVERYWHERE Authentications shifting to TV connected devices 7 Connected TV Devices’ share of TVE grew 130% YOY, now accounting for nearly 1 in 4 authentications. iOS and browser viewing both dropped 25% YOY.   ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  8. 8. TV EVERYWHERE Share of authentications by device type 8 Apple TV maintains a nearly 2:1 lead over Roku among connected devices (56% to 30% in the connected device segment and 13% to 7% overall) – both grew just under 20% in the last quarter alone.   ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  9. 9. TV EVERYWHERE Viewing platforms of choice are mobile or connected TVs Binge viewing within TVE continues to creep up, led by a 30% increase in videos per visitor on TV connected devices. Browser-based viewing is now half as frequent as any other method. 9 Viewing frequency increasing on most access types, only browsers showed a decline. ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  10. 10. TV EVERYWHERE Teens & Toons has the highest viewing rate 10 Teens & Toons is the most heavily viewed content, with Android devices used to view this genre at 2X the viewing frequency of iOS devices. Android viewers of Teens & Toons watch nearly 3 videos a day. ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  11. 11. TV EVERYWHERE Teens & Toons tends to be mobile content; movies are big screen 11 Sports is surprisingly more of a mobile story. Device usage varies by genre: Teens & Toons content can be consumed anywhere via Mobile, while Movies benefit from the high fidelity and size of Connected Devices. ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  12. 12. ONLINE VIDEO Online video continues to shift toward mobile devices 3 of 10 video starts on websites now on mobile. Given that total browsing is approaching 50% mobile, the lag in video viewing suggests preference for larger screens for videos. Mobile share of overall online video grew 13% YOY to 31% this past quarter; however, a decline in tablet’s share cancelled out some of smartphone’s growth. Share of smartphone viewing increased YOY by 33%, helping push the share of mobile viewing to 31%. Slowing tablet sales and usage impacts the share of tablet video viewing, which was down by 7% YOY. 12ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  13. 13. ONLINE VIDEO Mobile share of online video starts lower on TV sites 13 Mobile share of online video viewing via TV programming sites grew 62%, to just under 24% of unauthenticated video viewing. Even with a 62% increase in mobile share of viewing YOY on broadcast sites, consumers watch 20% fewer videos on these sites compared to total viewing (shares of 24% and 31%, respectively). TV programming’s longer form content appears more suited to other devices and larger screens. ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  14. 14. Screen size is a predictor of online video viewing frequency. The larger the screen, the higher the frequency with 50% more viewing on desktops than smartphones. ONLINE VIDEO Viewing frequency increased on mobile devices 14 The viewing frequency via a smartphone grew 10% YOY to 0.49 video views per visitor. ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
  15. 15. ONLINE VIDEO Ad start rate decreased on all devices 15 Viewers via Desktops are viewing the most ads per video view. Tablets had the largest decrease in ad-start to video-start ratio. While viewing frequency increased, fewer ads were started per video watched compared to last year. The decline is largest on tablets. Combining videos per visitor and ad starts per video results in smartphone users viewing about the same number of ads as last year, while tablet and desktop users are viewing fewer. The average ad start per video start in Q3 2015 was 0.83, down 10% over Q3 2014.   ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | Digital Video Benchmark Q3 2015
