Global Video Index 

The Millennials are changing the viewing patterns across many devices; according to analysts. They are the cord never, the mobile-first generation and former pirates driving this global phenomenon. And this is almost universal across many regions – essentially the same – at least when it comes to mobile devices and the video they watch on them.
