Samsung Ads have set out to explore how people’s viewing habits are changing - particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic - by comparing data from January and June 2020. 

The results show that streaming reached a tipping point during lockdown, accounting for the majority of TV viewing vs linear TV (59% vs 41%). 

On average, people in the UK were, as of June, streaming content for 43 minutes per day longer than linear TV.

Download the report below and find out more about the research as Alex Hole, Vice-President of Samsung Ads Europe, speaks to James Chandler on the IAB UK Connected podcast.
