Intelligence and insights for the smart-home industry

March 2022

Welcome to Plume IQ, our monthly reveal of data-driven intelligence and customer-focused insights from more than 2.1 billion connected devices, and over 44 million locations, managed in the Plume Cloud.

Big screens dominated on big game day

From smartphones to tablets, our homes are awash with small screen video streaming devices—on Plume-powered home networks in the U.S., there are over 7,500 different kinds of smartphones alone. However, for American, it was big screen usage that dominated Super Bowl Sunday.

Compared to typical daily usage, the amount of data consumed by smart TVs on big game day increased significantly by 31%, with streaming set-top boxes up 20%, and smartphones only up 11%. At the brand level, Sony topped the charts for increased data usage of smart TVs and set-top boxes combined at 44%, followed by Samsung at 40%. Plume data certainly suggests that for key sporting events, TV is still about the big screen experience.
