Measuring viewership across four-screens has pushed up audience numbers for drama by more than 100% in some parts of the world. Documentary and reality audiences are also up by more than 80% in markets where measurement has evolved from live to live+time-shifted. Eurodata’s APAC head, Bo Zhang, looks at the impact of four-screen viewing and measurement on certain genres along with insights into the impact that original programming from Asia is making in other parts of the world.
