Like most of us these days, you probably have a favorite TV show. A show that makes you want to binge-watch it over and over again. For me that's NBC’s Parks and Recreation, something about the citizens of Pawnee, Indiana has me coming back and re-visiting this odd, yet charming show.

It’s the 89th minute, Ronaldo is stepping up for a penalty kick… and your live stream decides to buffer or go down entirely. Imagine the agony of your thousands of viewers. Imagine the scalding social media posts. Imagine the hit to your reputation. Even when the World Cup isn’t on the line, viewers will abandon your service if a video doesn’t play within two seconds. After five seconds of start time, drop-off rates climb exponentially.

For several quarters we’ve reported in the Global Video Index that long-form (20+ mins.) video increased to over 50% of time watched on every device: connected TVs, tablets, PCs, even smartphones, the smallest screen of all and a bit of a head-scratcher. This quarter, again, long-form made up more than 50% of time watched on every screen. It was the third time in the past five quarters that’s happened. It is no longer an anomaly, it’s a trend. Not surprisingly, long-form and ultra-long-form content is watched to completion most often on PCs, to the tune of 71% for 20+ min. content and 59% for 40+ min. content.
