Research consultancy Latitude’s new study The Future of Storytelling shows digital TV will be an integral part of how stories are told in the years to come. According to the study, “audiences are more ready than ever to embrace new tech-driven possibilities for stories to [affect] us more deeply.” The report identifies four different audience archetypes: Seekers, Relaters, Realists, and Players. Among findings:

  • 78% want to “friend” a character digitally on Facebook or via text messages and have the ability to help sway the character’s decisions.
  • 87% want to see events through the eyes of a particular character or to switch between different characters’ points-of-view.
  • 41% use a second screen at least daily while watching TV.
  • The most popular second screen interactions for TV shows tend to be goal-oriented, such as earning rewards (80% interested), voting to decide a show’s outcome (79%), or making a purchase (76%).
  • 92% agree there’s a real opportunity for brands to make ads feel more like a story or a game that they’d naturally choose to engage with.
