  • @JoeFry though it don't take statistics to observe that we're all watching TV with a device in arm's reach (certainly most enviable customers that most brands are pursuing)...and whether you're distracted with the device from the show, or using the device to followup on things you see, TV is having to bend to new realities which are that TV is no longer the chief device in the room anymore. TV will do well to embrace the other devices not fight them.

  • Although 4) '86% of TV users using mobile device as they watch' is definitely not the same as '86% of mobile Internet users are using their mobile devices simultaneously with TV' ...

  • @JoeFry: Source: Yahoo! and The Nielsen Company, January 2011, also cited in a recent Google Mobile presentation 'The Time for Mobile is Now' from Brian McDevitt, Head of Mobile Ads at Google. 86% of mobile Internet users are using their mobile devices simultaneously with TV. 1 in 4 say they are browsing content related to what they are watching. Varying other sources lately have parroted similar or very close figures, but I'd stick with Nielson - the TV metrics guys over anybody else.

  • Surely there is no way 86% of TV viewers are using mobile device as they watch (Slide 15) ... we have been doing some work around this @collectiveldn and that sounds very high. Refs?
