twitter icon facebook icon linkedin icon link icon

Over the past year, we’ve witnessed one of the most profound changes in the history of television: the rise and acceleration of Streaming TV.  

Streaming is now the primary source of TV for a majority of television viewers with three out of four viewers1 choosing to stream. Today, 90% of all 13 to 54 year-olds2 watch TV on a streaming platform. That’s an entire generation of consumers who most actively engage with their favorite TV show and movies — and their favorite brands — in a streaming environment.

From Oct. 5-8, join Hulu at Advertising Week’s first ever virtual event as we explore what the acceleration in Streaming TV means for advertisers and brands of all sizes, and how Hulu is shaping the future of streaming.
