What Are Las Vegas Consumers Watching On TV?

Nov 18, 2021 2:10:26 PM / by Larry Julius

Every week, according to Nielsen, 1.7 million adult consumers in Las Vegas watch something on television. But, of course, the definition of what it means to watch TV has changed since the time when the number of available viewing options could be counted on the fingers of a single hand.

Today, Las Vegas consumers have a gargantuan number of viewing choices. This includes programs from stations like KSNV, KVUU, KLAS, KTNV, and KLVX. Or maybe cable and satellite systems like COX, DISH, and DirecTV. There's also content delivered over the internet from Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime.

No longer are Las Vegas consumers tied to the 21-inch Zenith in their living rooms. Instead, TV can be watched on giant LCDs, smartphones, and tablets from any room in the house, in the backseat of their cars, or practically anywhere else.

The best way to think about TV watching in Las Vegas is in terms of three buckets:

  1. Over-the-air...including all broadcast channels
  2. Cable...including all premium and non-premium programming
  3. Internet...including all streaming services. This is also known as OTT or CTV

Here's how many Las Vegas adult viewers fall into each bucket. Remember, viewers are not limited to a single bucket.

Streaming Video Terms For Las Vegas Small Business Owners

Sep 21, 2021 9:41:01 AM / by Larry Julius

Las Vegas business owners are expected to spend $147,740,000 on streaming video advertising in 2021, according to Borrell Associates, a company that tracks online marketing expenditures across the country. This spending will be 30.9% higher than in 2020.

Streaming video advertising expenditures are accelerating as Las Vegas consumers continue to abandon shows on local TV stations and cable systems in favor of programming streamed via an internet connection. These online channels include Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Disney+, Paramount+, Peacock, Prime Video, Roku Channel, SlingTV, PlutoTV, and dozens more.

This type of streamed video content is known collectively as OTT (Over-The-Top-Television) or CTV (Connected-Television). These two terms are sometimes used interchangeably but do have a subtle difference.

OTT generally means the video is watched on a small device like a computer, tablet, or smartphone.  CTV, on the other hand, typically means the content is viewed on a smart-TV or a regular television using a streaming device like a Roku or Amazon stick.

In Las Vegas, according to Nielsen, OTT/CTV has exceeded the weekly reach of local newspapers and streaming audio services such as Pandora and Spotify. The medium is rapidly approaching the reach of local cable and broadcast TV stations.
