German consultancy and research company Goldmedia has started data collection for the fourth edition of its Web-TV-Monitor, Germany’s largest study on the reach, usage and development of the online TV market.

The report commissioned by media authorities BLM and LFK will for the first time include YouTube channels this year.

The results are based on a survey among German online video providers and YouTube channel operators taking place until early September 2015.

The Web-TV-Monitor 2015 will be published by BLM, LFK, Goldmedia and on its website.
