Time Shifting Benefits Long-Form Journalism

Mark Armstrong, founder of Longreads and an editorial adviser for Read It Later, on how we consume content: “The way we are forced to consume devalues the content, it leads to diminishing returns for businesses that must see pageview growth year over year, and it leads to burnout of even the hungriest news staff.”

TV Viewers Like Long-Form Digital Content

Longer-form digital entertainment content destinations continue to gain popularity among U.S. TV viewers. In March, Netflix remained the biggest digital platform when it comes to the most time spent per viewer, coming in at just under 10 hours a month. Netflix was up 6.6% in March over February, to 9 hours and 53 minutes — much of this coming from its longer movie content.
