While TV apps made be good for lot of stuff --
games, extra info and other content -- apps makes no difference whether viewers will watch a TV show.
In a presentation at OMMA Video in Los Angeles, Ben
Theriault , senior vp of sales for North America , GfK Digital Market Intelligence, says 70% of those survey say it makes "no difference" about whether they'll view an episode of an specific TV
series. That number is down from 79% a few years ago.
And, for some, TV
apps may be a turnoff: Theriault says 9% say having an TV app makes them less likely to watch a TV show. That number had been 12% a few years ago.
