Santiago, Chile, July 23, 2012 – Comscore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR), a leader in measuring the digital world, today released a study on online video viewing activities in Chile with insights from its Comscore Video Metrix service. The study found that Chile ranked as the most engaged online video market in Latin America with viewers watching an average of 176 videos per viewer during May 2012, an increase of 60 percent from the previous year.

“Online video consumption in Chile has grown immensely in the past year, fueled by an increase in content options available to consumers,” said Rodrigo Daie, Comscore country manager for Chile. “In recent years, we have seen online video evolve from a purely user-generated content venue to a channel where professionally produced, long-form content is now widely available. This expansion of video content brings tremendous potential to advertisers that are looking to reach their key audiences during this highly-engaging online activity.”

9 in 10 Web Users in Chile Viewed Online Video in May
During the past year, online video has become an increasingly important activity in Chileans’ daily digital lives. In May 2012, nearly 6.8 million people age 15 and older watched online video in Chile, an increase of 11 percent from the previous year, with 91 percent of the country’s online population partaking in this activity.

These 6.8 million viewers watched a total of 1.2 billion videos during the month, an increase of 77 percent from the previous year. This significant jump in online video consumption has been driven primarily by an increase in the number of videos watched per viewer. Chileans watched an average of 176 videos per viewer during the month, an increase of 60 percent in the past year, to rank as the most engaged online video population in the region compared to Argentina (132 videos per viewer), Mexico (168 videos per viewer) and Brazil (150 videos per viewer).
