I recently read an article on paidContent.org that talked about how, despite the perceived negative impact it had on Nickelodeon, Hasbro Studios signed a streaming deal with Netflix. Basically, industry insiders view Nick’s deal with Neflix as being partially responsible for the networks 26% drop in viewership.
This got me thinking about how my children consume children’s content…no longer are they tied to the TV, now they can play with Dora on my iPad / iPhone, watch shows online and of course through various connected devices. So, at what point do networks stop looking at TV viewership and focus on overall consumer connection?
