After years of resistance, consumers are coming around to the notion that advertising is a reasonable enough tradeoff for free online video content.

After analyzing 11.3 billion online video views and 6 billion ad views, FreeWheel concluded that consumers appear willing to sit through more commercials when those sponsor messages are surrounded by long-form programming.
