Jacobs Media: Online Listening Tilts Upward in 2009
New handset devices such as the Iphone and Blackberry Storm combined with 3G wireless broadband are driving the adoption curve for online listening sharply upward, suggests a new study from Jacobs Media. Derived from a sample of 21,000 rock music e-mail subscribers, the latest Jacobs data suggests that Americans who report listening to streamed audio services at least once a week has risen to about 39 percent, up from 32 percent in 2008.

Terrestrial radio station owners appear to be beneficiaries of this upward trend, as the most frequently mentioned sources by those listening online are actually local radio stations that stream their signals online, though listening to Web-only sites has also increased in the last year.

The current survey also provides evidence that streaming audio laggards may become an endangered species. Respondents who report never having listened to streaming audio online have diminished from 50 percent in 2005 (first year of the survey) to only 34 percent in 2009.

Jacobs Media President Fred Jacobs says the study demonstrates that streaming can effectively extend the exposure of a terrestrial broadcaster's brand, suggesting that having a good audio stream is effectively the same as erecting a new tower and transmitter that creates availability to users of digital media.
