Understanding The Journey of Digital Fluency Across Generations


In today’s digital landscape, there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to being digitally savvy. Consumers are operating along a spectrum of digital fluency, so it is imperative for brands to understand the consumer journey through the digital funnel. What is their order of digital adoption? What are the generational differences, from Boomers to Gen-Zers, and who are more interactively-driven? How do direct-to-consumer brands play a role in this process?

In this session, Hulu Vice President and Head of Research, Julie DeTraglia, will take a dive into the consumer’s digital path to understand the range of digital fluency outside of the constructs of age. Immediately following, a panel of industry experts will discuss the thought and execution behind creating engaging products that are specifically designed for the new emerging direct brand economy.

Reaching the Unreachable: Connecting with Young Consumers in the Age of Peak TV

1:15 PM | Main Stage (IMAX)

In 2018, the average age of a cable primetime viewer is 55, and the average age of the broadcast primetime audience is 65 – far older than the coveted 18-34 demographic that brands and advertisers are trying to reach. These cord-cutters are turning into cord-nevers and moving away from the traditionally-delivered TV in favor of brands like Hulu and Vice that are redefining entertainment and news experiences while tapping into – and even shaping – culture. Join Hulu and Vice for a candid discussion about how brands can stay relevant in the ever-evolving state of media and explore the unique opportunities to capitalize on the deep connections that today’s young, digital natives have with the content they love.
