OTT devices were over-represented in authenticated ad views, accounting for 22% share, compared to 6% share for digital viewing overall.
About the Data: The dataset used for the report is one of the largest available on the usage and monetization of professional, rights managed video content, and is comprised of over 50 billion video views in the first half of 2014. The data for authenticated viewing relates to programmers and MVPDs who generate the majority of their advertising revenue from linear TV services.
