People watch TV online primarily for three reasons:
1. They want to catch-up on a show they missed in broadcast.
2. They want to watch something they haven’t seen on TV before.
3. They want to repeat a show they’ve already seen on broadcast TV.
Repeat viewers comprise a small segment of the online audience, with 30% of respondents in an ABC study saying that they had gone online to re-watch an episode they’d already seen on TV.6 Similarly, nearly 40% of viewers used ABC.com to watch a re-watch an episode after seeing it on TV.
