Atmosphere Continues Rapid Growth, Now Reaches More 18-34 Year Olds Than Any Cable Channel

According to Nielsen’s Media Impact from March 2022, the out-of-home streaming platform is #1 in Adults 18-34, surpassing the performance of top cable channels including TBS, ESPN, TNT, CNN & Fox News

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Atmosphere (, the worldwide leader in streaming TV entertainment for businesses, announced that its streaming content reached more 18-34 year olds than any cable channel in March, according to Nielsen Media Impact, a clear sign of its advantage for advertisers as audiences continue to migrate away from traditional media sources.

Adults A18-34 is the hardest demographic to reach on television, making Atmosphere’s ability to capture their attention particularly impressive. Atmosphere similarly excels across other audience demos, including Adults 18-49 and Adults 24-54, sitting within the 5 top channels in both categories.

With Adults 18+ across both broadcast and streaming platforms, Atmosphere also is within the top 10 most viewed, a list that includes both CBS and streamers Netflix, Apple TV+, and HBO Max, and proof that Atmosphere is competitive across OTT platforms, including those with advertising-supported tiers.

“Atmosphere was built to be a superior platform for advertisers to reach unreachable television audiences, and now we have the data to prove it,” said Leo Resig, CEO and Co-Founder of Atmosphere. “During March Madness, our A18-34 viewership was larger than that of both TBS and TNT, clear evidence that even some of the most popular sports programming cannot surpass our ability to capture audience attention.”

Atmosphere scored a total reach of 23.14%, or 16.8 million adults in the 18-34 range. The second highest rank was TBS Network at 21.63%, followed by ESPN at 21.51%, TNT at 20.23%, CNN at 12.37% and Fox News at 11.92%.

In Adults 18-49, Atmosphere had a total reach of 21.5%, or 28.8 million adults, placing it within the Top 5 among cable channels behind TBS, ESPN and TNT. In Adults 25-54, Atmosphere reached 22.09%, behind the same channels.

In Adults 18+, Atmosphere is at #10, reaching 16.27% of Adults 18+ and placing it in front of HBO Max at 15.48%.
