Nielson compared two of the biggest OTT providers in US. Users of one of them, access content via PCs, the figure was much higher 81% in the case of the second OTT provider viewers.
Users of OTT provider 1 also tended to access the application much more via game consoles (26% vs 4%), Blu Ray (14% vs 5%), and other devices than provider 2.
We can ask ourselves, are the game consoles next second screen devices?
