Nearly Two Thirds of U.S. Latinx Spanish-Language Content Viewers Stream

A recent Horowitz Research survey found 80% of U.S. Latinx TV content viewers are streamers, including nearly two thirds (64%) of Latinx Spanish-language content viewers.

Eight out of ten (80%) subscribe to at least one SVOD service. On average, Latinx streamers pay for four streaming services.

According to Horowitz, half of Latinx households (49%) subscribe to both a traditional MVPD and at least one streaming service, with younger, multilingual, bicultural, family households the most likely to leverage both MVPD and SVOD platforms to meet their households’ needs, which includes demand for both English and Spanish content.

Six in 10 Latinx watch Spanish-language content at least occasionally, according to the study. Notably, viewing of Spanish-language content is as high among bilingual, bicultural Latinx as it is among their Spanish-dominant counterparts. And, almost one in three (29%) English-oriented, highly acculturated Latinx watch in Spanish at least occasionally, according to the study.

While traditional (broadcast and cable) used to be the main source for Spanish-language content, the Spanish-language TV landscape is transforming, according to Horowitz. The past couple of years have ushered in an explosion of Spanish and Latinx-themed streamed content, starting with the success of Netflix’s “Narcos,” “La Casa de Papel,” “Elite,” “La Reina del Sur” (a Telemundo series) and other popular shows.

Horowitz noted Latinx audiences can now access Spanish-language and Latinx-themed content across a wide variety of free and paid services: Peacock, with a selection of Telemundo content; Amazon Prime Video, which is making substantial investments in Spanish and Latinx-themed content; FuboTV, offering Spanish-language sports programming; Discovery, which offers various Spanish-language mobile apps; Pluto TV, with free programming and channel surfing in English and Spanish; Pantaya; OnDemandLatino; and the new Univision/Televisa venture Prende TV, among many others.

“Latinx consumers have long been underserved in the streaming space, but this is completely changing now,” said Horowitz’s Adriana Waterston, SVP, insights and strategy, in a statement. “There is a market for all sorts of streamed Spanish and Latinx-themed content, ranging from traditional telenovelas to content that speaks to the sensibilities of younger, bilingual, bicultural U.S. Latinx. Importantly, much of this content will not only appeal to Latinx consumers but other audiences as well.”

Latinx audiences continue to value the benefits of traditional MVPD services when making their subscription decisions, such as accessing live TV content, watching television episodes the day they air, and having access to local, national and international up-to-date news coverage.

However, two in three Latinx consumers surveyed perceive that the quality and variety of Spanish content available in the streaming ecosystem is as good or surpasses that which is available through MVPD services, which could lead to more Latinx households becoming cord-cutters, according to Horowit. The Horowitz survey shows that already 22% of Latinx TV homes have cut the cord in the last three years.

“Latinx households have been some of the most loyal customers of MVPD services, driven by the desire to have access to the most robust selection of both English and Spanish content,” Waterston said in a statement. “As streaming services amp up their Latinx-oriented offerings, traditional players will need to find new ways to retain their value proposition among this audience.”

Study: Almost Half of TV Content Viewers in U.S. Use an AVOD Service Monthly

Almost half (46%) of TV content viewers in the United States report using an ad-supported streaming service (AVOD) at least monthly, according to a new study.

Meanwhile, 28% use a free ad-supported TV (FAST) service with ad supported linear channels in addition to their on-demand offerings, according to Horowitz Research’s recent State of Viewing and Streaming 2021 report.

Consumers are using a wide range of ad-supported services with linear content. Pluto TV, Tubi, The Roku Channel app, and IMDb TV are the services consumers report using most often, according to the survey of 2,000 TV content viewers conducted in May.

Streaming is poised to eclipse traditional platforms in terms of share of viewing of long-form TV content, the Horowitz study showed. Among consumers overall, 35% of self-reported time spent is now spent on linear content delivered via a traditional service (cable, satellite, or over-the-air through an antenna), while 37% is spent on streamed content (the rest is spent on cable or satellite-delivered VOD, content that is DVR’d, or DVDs).

Half (50%) of time spent among 18-34 year olds is on streamed content, while only 18% of their time is spent with traditional, linear content.

Six in 10 (58%) streamers feel that ads are a fair “price” for being able to watch TV content for free or for a small price. Almost four in 10 consumers (38%) are starting to notice — and appreciate the more customized, personalized advertising experience they are getting through streaming.

“Consumers’ love for entertainment content and their desire to get as much of that content as they can for as little as they can hasn’t changed,” noted Adriana Waterston, SVP of insights and strategy for Horowitz. “The fundamentals of the industry haven’t changed. What has changed are the expectations consumers have about how, where and when they can consume the content they love, and the technology that exists to deliver those experiences. When delivered in the screen-agnostic, watch-anywhere, and highly personalized viewing experience of the streaming environment, we are seeing some consumers not just tolerating, but welcoming advertising, particularly when it is customized to their interests.”

Parrot Research: Demand for Emmy-Nominated Titles Has Grown Over Past Five Years

The average U.S. audience demand for TV series nominated for five or more major Emmys has grown 65.5% in the last half decade, according to new data from Parrot Analytics.

The demand for top Emmy nominees has grown from 11.3 times more in-demand than the average show in 2017 to 18.7 times more in-demand for this year’s top nominees.

In 2017 Emmy voters rewarded more character-focused drama and comedy series such as “Veep,” “Silicon Valley” and “Better Call Saul.” While these series did have loyal fanbases, they only cracked the lower levels of Parrot’s “Outstanding” category of audience demand.

With Disney+’s “WandaVision” and “The Mandalorian” racking up a combined 13 major Emmy nominations (and 46 overall) and Amazon Prime’s “The Boys” getting a nom for Best Drama, 2021 is by far the Emmys’ most crowd-pleasing year of the streaming era, according to Parrot.

“Emmy voters have traditionally stuck with the same series and talent year after year when it comes to nominations, even if those shows or talent don’t win,” said Parrot Analytics senior strategy analyst Julia Alexander. “But the proliferation of streaming and increase in audience demand for genre shows across new platforms have become seemingly impossible for the Academy to ignore.”

Disney+’s ‘Monsters at Work’ Top Rising Show, ‘Atypical’ Top Binge Show on TV Time Charts

Disney+’s “Monsters at Work” was the top rising show, while Netflix’s “Atypical” was the top binge show on the TV Time charts for the week ended July 11.

“Monsters at Work” debuted on Disney+ July 7. Featuring the voices of Billy Crystal and John Goodman, the series follows the characters of the animated “Monsters, Inc.” franchise.

“Atypical,” season four of which debuted July 9, is a coming-of-age story following Sam (Keir Gilchrist), a young man on the autism spectrum, as he searches for love and independence. The series also was No. 4 on the Shows on the Rise chart.

“Elite,” a Spanish series is about an elite prep school, took the silver on the binge chart. Season four of the series came out on Netflix June 18.

Coming in at No. 2 on the rising show chart was Netflix’s “I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson,” a comedy series featuring the “Saturday Night Live” alum. Season two of the show hit screens July 6.
