TV viewers are apparently much more ‘engaged’ when they watch content online, rather than on their TV sets, according to a study. Researchers at Simmons found that respondents were 25% more involved in programmes they viewed on the web, rather than in the conventional way. There was also good news for advertisers – viewers were reportedly 47% more engaged in ads shown during online TV shows. The study, via MarketingVox, measured engagement by looking at different ways respondents’ viewed content – whether they found it ‘inspirational’, ‘trustworthy’ or ‘life-enhancing’, for example. It found women and younger consumers had slightly higher levels of engagement online than average.
