Podcasting Reaches 25% of Britains!

Sunday, March 26, 2006
According to Podcasting News, podcasts are rapidly hitting the mainstream in the UK:
The British Market Research Bureau (BMRB) reports that a quarter of all adult internet users will listen to a podcast in the next 6 months.

“The findings suggest that up to 7.9 million adults could be downloading podcasts in the next 6 months, which represents a massive opportunity for advertisers and media owners alike,” said BMRB marketing director Steve Cooke.

The report is based on a national (UK) survey of 1,000 adults in February 2006.

Among adult internet users, 17% have downloaded a podcast in the last 6 months (rising to 28% among 16-24 year olds) and 24% are likely to download a podcast in the next 6 months, according to BMRB. Those owning an MP3 player are more likely to have downloaded a podcast (28%) with up to 38% likely to download a podcast in the next 6 months.

The BMRB found that podcasting is more likely to be a male activity, with male internet users almost twice as likely (22%) as females (12%) to have downloaded a podcast.
