Copyright © 2012 The Nielsen Company. 3To understand how consumers around the world are respondingto this fragmented media environment, Nielsen, a leadingglobal provider of information and insights into what consumerswatch and buy, surveyed online consumers across the globe ontheir multi-screen media usage, device ownership and purchaseintentions, Internet access points, and how they see mobiletechnology’s role in the future.Nielsen’s Global Survey of Multi-Screen Media Usage of more than28,000 Internet respondents in 56 countries indicates that watchingvideo content on computers has become just as popular as watchingvideo content on television among online consumers, with over 80percent reporting watching video content at home on a computer(84%) or onTV (83%) at least once a month. By contrast, in 2010,more online consumers reported watching video content onTV(90%) than on a computer (86%) in a month-long period.About the Survey and MethodologyThis report is based primarily on a series of media usage questions included in Nielsen’s Global Survey, in August/September 2011.Thesurvey polled more than 28,000 consumers with traditional online/Internet access from 56 countries throughout Asia-Pacific, Europe, LatinAmerica, the Middle East, Africa, and North America. While online survey methodology allows for tremendous scale and global reach, it islimited in that it provides a perspective only on the habits of existing Internet users, not total populations. Results may therefore, amongother possibilities, over-report online usage via computers, under-report traditional television usage, and/or under-report mobile mediausage. Additionally, responses are only indicative of respondents’ beliefs about their own media usage, rather than actual metered data.Source: Nielsen Global Survey of Multi-Screen Media Usage, Q3 2011*As reported by online consumers% Global Online AverageHow often have you watched video content on the following devices in the past 30 days?*3216179101627191881117241317911272171071143Computerat homeTelevisionat homeMore than once a dayOnce a dayA few times a weekOnce a weekLess than once a weekHave not watched video on thisdevice in the past 30 daysOnline, throughthe Internet(on any device)Mobile phone18101161045659137645 41099594 5107963Computer at work Portable DVDPlayerHandheldmultimedia device -not a phone(e.g. iPodTouch,PSP)Through a DVRor digital videorecorder suchasTiVo4 4768724 38713663 49710673 4768723 3861169Tablet Device(e.g., Apple iPad)Public computer(e.g. Library,Internet Café,Gym)Through anin-home videogame system(e.g. Playstation 3or Xbox 360)E-book Reader(e.g. AmazonKindle)TV or DVDplayer in a car
