Streaming video online is on the rise in the U.S., and how consumers tune in differs greatly across services.
Digital redefined, and now dominates, the music business landscape. Whether downloaded, streamed or watched on a computer or mobile phone, the hyper-fragmented world of music offers unprecedented opportunities and challenges where both the consumer and the industry need to find their way.
Games continue to be the most popular app category, and according to Nielsen research, 93 percent of app downloaders -- those who have downloaded an app within the past 30 days -- are willing to pay for the games they play. In contrast, only 76 percent of downloaders are willing to pay for news apps. Among smartphone consumers who have played mobile games in the past 30 days, those with iPhones, Windows 7 phones or Android phones are the most likely to have downloaded the games they played, while those with Blackberry phones or featurephones tend to play pre-loaded games.
