Google Q2 earnings call YouTube vs. TV - Business Insider - Business Insider

It has become customary for Google to make comparisons between YouTube and TV on its earnings calls — after all, it is hoping that brands will switch out some of their huge TV advertising budgets for online video.

Thursday's second-quarter earnings call was no exception. Google's executives made several references to how YouTube was coming after TV in a big way.

Omid Kordestani, Google's chief business officer, kicked things off with this standout stat: "YouTube reaches more 18- to 49-year-olds in the US than any US cable network."

Not only is YouTube apparently dominating in terms of reach, but people are treating YouTube like their television set.

Kordestani said: "The number of users coming to YouTube, who start at the YouTube homepage similar to the way they might turn on their TV, is up over three times year-over-year. Plus, once users are in YouTube, they are spending more time per session watching videos. On mobile, the average viewing session is now more than 40 minutes, up more than 50% year-over-year."

Those findings are extremely significant at this point in YouTube's life stage. Google wants to emphasize that YouTube is no longer just that repository of videos where people need to know what they want to watch before they want to watch it — YouTube is now becoming a discovery platform, acting as a curator of content. YouTube is mimicking the programming guide on your TV set.

And as users shift their viewing habits to online video, the advertising money is following.

Every year Google apes the TV industry's annual upfronts with its own "BrandCast" event. It's a flashy affair in which YouTube hauls out its biggest stars onstage and shows off its newest advertising products in a bid to secure big upfront advertising commitments from marketers.

"Compared to the same period after BrandCast last year ... commitments in the US were three times higher," Kordestani said. The number of...
