TV ads get more automated, easier. A Videa study of more than 200 marketing and ad professionals found 52% of respondents strongly agree that TV buying is transforming. More than 50% of survey respondents said they see money moving from digital to TV with easier, more automated buying. (RBR)

It’s a streaming world. Seventy percent of U.S. households have at least one streaming service subscription, compared with 40 percent of U.K. homes, according to a study from nScreenMedia’s Vindicia. The average American subscriber watches 3.4 services, at an average of $8.53 per month. (Forbes)

OTT ad revenue to double by 2020, Magna says. The agency predicts  OTT ad spend will see 39% growth to $3.8 billion in 2019 and 31% growth to $5 billion by 2020. (AdExchanger
