DHX and Ipsos Reveal Results from First Global Survey of Parents

DHX Media and Ipsos announce the results from a survey of 2,700 parents in the US, Canada and the UK, designed to illuminate how children age 0-12 consume entertainment content and brands.
 
The survey found that kids have embraced mobile on-demand viewing, and that tablets are their preferred screen for consuming content. In the households surveyed, 72% of children’s daily viewing is from streaming services such as YouTube, Netflix and others. When viewing content, 61% of kids use tablets, with 78% of households having at least one tablet and 29% having a tablet for use by a child only. Tablets were found to be the most popular screen used by children, who used the devices to watch 45% of their streamed content.
 
In addition, the survey found that 40% of kids use smartphones to consume their content, 90% of households with children under 13 have at least one smartphone, and 14% have a smartphone that is used only by a child. Furthermore, nearly one-quarter of children are using smartphones to watch streamed content.
 
The survey also found that YouTube is the most popular streaming platform among respondents, followed closely by Netflix. Of the households surveyed, YouTube’s Advertising-supported Video on Demand (AVOD) service garnered 15% of all streaming viewing, with Netflix coming in at 13%. When YouTube’s premium Subscription-supported Video on Demand (SVOD) services are included, YouTube garners 24% of all streaming viewing.
 
The survey also polled parents about their receptivity to a new concept called “One Click Content to Retail”. One Click Content to Retail is a new model that leverages video on an AVOD platform to serve ads to viewers which allow them to click through to purchase featured products. The results showed that 80% of parents liked the idea of being able to click through from a video to buy products for their kids and that 49% of parents said they would use One Click Content to Retail if available. Meanwhile, 81% of parents liked the idea of a child being able to keep a “Wish List” of products via One Click Content to Retail.
 
In addition, 85% of parents research what to purchase online at least monthly, 78% buy products online at least monthly, and nearly four out of every 10 purchases made specifically for a child are made online. Two thirds of parents are very likely buy products such as toys, games and clothing featuring a child’s favourite character. Parents surveyed were as comfortable with kids viewing streaming content as with traditional TV, and nine in 10 parents say YouTube child-appropriate advertising is acceptable.

Me to You Releases Christmas Animation

With more and more people spending Christmas alone, the animation’s message has never been more pertinent. According to Age UK, over 500,000 over 60s will spend this Christmas season on their own. Me to You hopes that the animation will help encourage people to remember their loved ones and make their Christmas with a card.

“To have been awarded the contract with Carroll Shelby really is the icing on our birthday cake. As we celebrate our achievements a decade down the line, we’re in a really strong position for the next 10 years and beyond. It’s not just about the work we deliver but how we work that really appeals to our clients – we’re good people doing good work and care deeply about the projects we’re appointed to.  So much so, I’m delighted to say that as this project with Carroll Shelby comes to an end, the team has already briefed us on another project they’d like us to work on in the future.”
 
Blue Kangaroo already works extensively with big-name brands in the UK such as Entertainment One, Warner Bros and BBC Worldwide, producing brand identities primarily from feature films and television shows, transferring the iconic visuals into packaging, point of sale materials and print, as well as providing product and character development services.  In addition to its customer-base in the UK, the agency has also successfully exported its skills to the US, working with clients including Hit Entertainment, Mattel, The Walt Disney Company and now Carroll Shelby.

Memorial Service Held for Helen Bailey

Saturday 26 November saw the Memorial Service for Helen Bailey, widow of John Sinfield of PSL and a veteran of the licensing industry.
It was good to see so many of the licensing fraternity in attendance. Helen’s brother gave a beautiful eulogy and Trevor Jones gave a eulogy based on Helen’s licensing years which brought back a lot of memories for many in attendance.

Despite the dreadful circumstances surrounding Helen’s death, which of course are still subject to legal proceedings, the Memorial was very much a celebration of her life with a lot of music, anecdotes and humour. It was a very fitting tribute to a lovely person who, sadly, is no longer with us.

Executive Seeks New Challenges
 
I have 8 years experience of working for a large London Publishing house licensing book content to third parties. I am looking for a role which utilises my skills in negotiation and relationship building and can develop my experience within the licensing field. Having licensed book content to a wide variety of customers from national Newspapers to international Publishers I would relish the experience to work in a new industry, licensing new content to new clients.
