Kids and teens love YouTube, but in the UK do they love Spotify more as a source for music? Ofcom’s latest report hints that they might.
British communications and media regulator Ofcom is training its sights on the tech giants again, with a new market study.
Ofcom’s latest Media Nations consumer research has plenty of points of interest for the music industry.
UK communications regulator Ofcom has published its latest ‘Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes’ report exploring the habits of 3-17 year-olds.
There may be more trouble ahead (or at least more music to be faced and regulator tunes to be danced to) for TikTok and some of its social-video peers.
British communications regulator Ofcom has published a new report, Media Nations, which is making headlines with its claim that TV-streaming services have now overtaken traditional pay-television in the UK. However, the report also has some new figures on music to share, including the claim that music-streaming services now account for 8% of all audio listening in the UK – and 29% for 15-24 year-olds.
There’s a tipping point coming soon for the latter demographic though: currently the average 15-24 year-old Brit spends 33% of their weekly ‘audio time’ listening to live radio on a radio set; 29% streaming music online; 18% listening to their own digital music collection stored on a device; and 9% using ‘music video channels / sites for background listening’ (a category that includes YouTube AND MTV). This time next year, streaming will surely have overtaken live radio for this age group.

Communications regulator Ofcom has released the fourth wave of its consumer-tracking study into online copyright infringement, providing the music industry (and others) with the latest stats on piracy in the UK.
Topline stats: 17% of British internet users aged 12+ consumed at least one piece of online content illegally between March and May this year: around 7.4m people. However, only 4% of internet users exclusively consumed illegal content: a hardcore crew of 1.7m pirates.
UK communications regulator Ofcom has published its latest Online Copyright Infringement Tracker report, covering online piracy in the three months between November 2012 and January 2013.
