“FreeWheel has released its Q3 ’15 Video Monetization Report (VMR), which reveals the continuation of a number of important industry trends. Both ad views and video views grew 28% vs. Q3 ’14, consistent with growth rates seen over the past few quarters.

Live video was once again the fastest-growing genre, with a 113% year-over-year growth, compared to 30% for long-form and 9% for short-form. Sports was again the biggest driver of live with 63% of sports video viewed live, compared with 17% of news video viewed live (other genres were in low single digits). News had the biggest proportion of short-form (76%), while Entertainment (60%) ad Kids (59%) had the biggest proportion of long-form.

Overall, Sports also had the highest share of ad views in the quarter (31%), followed by Entertainment (31%) and News and Music (each 13%). However, when looked at on a daypart basis, Entertainment dominated, accounting for between 64% (in early morning) to 83% (in early fringe) of all viewing.”
