Majority of NFL Fans Watched Opening Week Games via Streaming Apps

We are officially in the age of cord-cutters. For the opening week of the NFL season, 58% of surveyed adult viewers reported watching at least one game via a paid streaming service or app. Thanks to online streaming, market share has become more cluttered making it harder for platforms to stand out.

How it is Changing Marketing

The surge of cord-cutting has forced platforms and marketers to re-think traditional advertising, and instead urging brands to incorporate OTT Programmatic advertising. The NFL has also forged digital partnerships with companies like TikTok and Reddit to connect with younger viewers and reach with social web forums.
