“GO USA CONNECTED TV" FOR HOW WE WATCH TV NOW

International travelers can now explore the USA’s must-see places, great outdoors, foodie hot spots, and amazing road trips on the new GoUSA TV!

There’s a revolution happening right now in television with rapidly growing consumer interest in cutting the cable and opting for Connected TV. By upgrading to “Smart TVs,”or simply using a plug-in device, viewers save on cable costs, while still receiving favorite channels and discovering new entertainment options like GoUSA TV.

Why Connected TV?

  • We live in a multi-screen, multi-platform world, with one in three consumers saying they’ve never had cable television, or no longer do.
  • While people are watching less linear television, time with digital video is on the rise.
  • By 2025, half of viewers under 32 will not subscribe to a pay TV service.
  • Currently 80% of television sales are internet-enabled, interactive televisions that support the increasing amount of consumers who consider themselves “cord-cutters.”
  • Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to 10% when reading it in text.
