Based on extensive usage data spanning thirteen years (1998 – 2010), AccuStream Research has structured, compiled, refined, sorted and analyzed video views by month, site, brand, content category, event, affiliate partners, channel and aggregation service.

In addition, strong demand for entertainment and kids’ video (including, Nickelodeon and PBSKids sites) continued to pace that category’s performance.

Moreover, music video views on ground-breaking, professionally managed sites (i.e. Vevo) improved share percentage significantly, reversing what was a four-year steep decline that inversely parallels the emergence of YouTube in 2006.

Online-only brands (including those owned and operated by major offline media companies) generated 63.1% of total views, and increase of 20% over 2009, while cable/premium TV branded sites controlled another 26.3%
