Television Advertising In Wilmington: What Are Consumers Watching?

May 11, 2022 4:53:44 PM / by Larry Julius

Every week, 550,788 Wilmington, Delaware area consumers watch something on TV.

Not too many years ago, when a Wilmington consumer sat down to watch TV, the program options were limited to what was on Philadelphia stations like WDPN, WPPX, KYW, WCAU, WHYY, or, maybe, what was on a handful of cable channels.  That was then. This is now.

Today, according to Nielsen, each time a TV is turned on in a Wilmington living room, the viewer has more than 817,000 options not only from broadcast stations and cable systems, but also from streaming video platforms like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Peacock, YouTube, Amazon, Tubi, Crackle, and FreeVee.

Of course, Wilmington consumers don't even need to sit down in front of their big-screen LCD, anymore. Most of the 817,000 available programs can also be viewed on their computers, tablets, gaming devices, and smartphones. But as far as viewers are concerned, though, it's all just television.
