A survey titled ‘Engaging Asian American Consumers at the Dawn of a New Decade‘ was produced by Nielsen showed that the ethnic group consume more digital content than others.
Compared to the rate of the total US population, Asian Americans are turning to internet viewing instead of live TV at a rate of nearly double.
82% of Asian Americans subscribe to at least one streaming service compared to 72% of the total country’s population.
Nielsen suggests that a reason behind the demographic’s interest in online media is that streaming services such as Netflix offer more representation.
