This event explored the contemporary issue of 2-screening, and exclusively revealed the findings from our new study.
2-screening makes up a fraction of the time people spend watching TV, but it is a very interesting fraction, as everyone is talking about it, but very little is actually known about it. 2-screening has enhanced the TV experience for some and it’s time to look in more depth at exactly what the implications are to advertisers.
'Screen Life: The View from the Sofa' is a new study carried out for Thinkbox by COG Research and designed to help the advertising community understand the context of multi-screening (watching TV and simultaneously using an internet-connected device such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet).
The Screen Life research used a combination of online, in-home and in-laboratory research techniques. It examined over 600 hours of TV viewing gathered from filming the living rooms of 20 multi-screening households in the UK for two weeks. This footage underwent psycho-physiological analysis to examine actual programme and ad break engagement. This was coupled with self-reporting from the households involved using COG's award-winning digital ethnography technique, a laboratory test to examine ad recognition, and online research among 1,000 people with TV and online access.

You can of course watch the whole thing, or just move the play head to the bit you want to view based on the timings below.
Your login to watch a stream is not the same as your Thinkbox Website login. A nuisance, we know, but unfortunately it’s another one of those technical things. If you’ve accessed one our streams before, and remember your streaming login details, you can of course use these. But if you can’t remember this, or don’t have one anyway, you can just make up a login on the spot and you’re in.
