What’s a PVR?
Personal Video Recorder
• Everyone who subscribes to a
digital cable or satellite
television service must have a
receiver to decode the digital
television signal they receive
before they can view it on their
television set
• PVR’s, or Personal Video
Recorders, are the
hardware/software which are
built into some digital television
receivers to record
programming

PVR Penetration

television grows, particularly
HDTV, so does the penetration
of PVR’s (since they are built

PVR Use
Personal Video Recorder
•
PVR’s allow users to pause and
rewind live programming, and to
very easily record programs using
the electronic program guide
•
Once a program has been paused
and resumed (or time-delayed)
viewers are no longer watching
live television; the PVR may then
be used to fast forward through
the program until the viewer
catches up to the live timeline
•
Likewise, when viewing recorded
programming viewers may fast
forward through to the end of
the recording
6
PVR Use
Personal Video Recorder
•
PVR use is recorded by BBM
Canada as Playback viewing, and
Playback is included in the
audience delivery for a program
•
Playback can mean viewing live
programming time-delayed by
pausing, or viewing recorded
programming up to seven days
after the original airing
•
Playback viewing allows users to
view the content when
convenient, and to fast forward
through the recorded content

• While almost everyone in
Canada watches TV weekly,
PVR’s owners are slightly more
likely to watch TV than nonowners (they have recorded
programming they NEED to
watch!)
• TV’s weekly reach of PVR
owners indexes at 101 v. s. the
general P2+ population

PVR Use
Personal Video Recorder
• Even when users do not stop,
commercial messages still
break through
• A large majority of PVR users
indicate they are aware of the
advertisers in the commercials
they are fast forwarding
• This can be attributed to a
state of hyper attentiveness as
users are glued to the screen
to determine where in the
recording they wish to stop
