Over 28 per cent of the respondents watch mobile ads for winning credits in games, followed by ads while shopping online at 25.5 per cent."What we are witnessing is an increasing migration of video consumption including video ads by users in Tier I and II cities because of economical 4G data plans in a highly competitive mobile operators market which is pushing costs and inversely offering higher data limit packages," Arun Gupta, CEO and Founder, MoMagic Technologies said in a statement.The survey also showed that 37 per cent of the people view their mobile phones over six times in an hour due to high level of addiction fuelled by interrelated activities such as social media and online videos, etc. This has led to rapid consumption of mobile ads as 56 per cent of the respondents see these ads at least two to three times a day.

Image-based text ads were found to be at 24 per cent, while text messages were at 11 per cent.It is because mobile video advertisements generally lead to better story telling and effectively delivering a much better lead conversion rates for advertisers, the survey showed.The results were based on a survey conducted on 35,000 people from Tier -I, II and III cities and aged between 18-40, across India.--IANSrt/nks/bg
