How Do You Use Your TV? Apps, IoT, Voice? Take The Study, Enter to Win a $500 Amazon

Smart TVs and streaming are now the norm and the result is a shift away from the tradition “channel flipping” that used to define TV watching. In this study, we’re looking for insights into how you use your TV. Questions in the study range from what apps you stream with to what device(s) you use to stream. It also covers whether IoT is part of your TV experience and how voice commands are used when it comes to controlling a Smart TV.

Completing the survey enters you in a giveaway, with a chance to win one of three $500 Amazon gift cards. To take the survey and enter the giveaway, click here.

Great, another contest put on by a Canadian company that is only available for Americans...

How about offering contests that all members of this site can enter?

Flaw in Survey

Question 10 "Please select the brand of your soundbar or AV receiver..." is a mandatory question but has only a short list of selections to choose from. There is an input box for "other" but "other is not an option you can select. If your brand is not in the list the only way to proceed past this question in the survey is to deliberately answer incorrectly...

bad survey...
BAD SURVEY!!

Edit: Mark - (@imagic) ... is this something that can be fixed or should I/We just fudge the answer to Q10?

It's not necessarily question 10 for everyone. It's customized based on your other answers so those not using a soundbar will never even see that question.

That said, let me see if I can either get that question addressed or get some instruction on how you should fill it out. Thanks for the heads up.

I had the same issue. I just selected my speaker brand and also entered the brand of my AV receiver. I own both a Klipsch soundbar and Klipsch speakers attached to my AV receiver, so all of how I responded is true.

You should now be able to select "other" at the bottom of the list in the 1st field and also type in the brand below it.

Thanks

I will address this complaint here and hope the nonsense ends for all giveaways going forward. We often have to choose US only for a number of reasons:
1) shipping, if the prize is coming from a US sponsor then cross border shipping becomes cost prohibitive
2) shipping part 2, US based products often have slight differences than Canada based or Europe based products so this can cause potential warranty and usage issues
3) data collection, although anonymous and aggregated we wish to avoid conflict with CASL and GDPR legislation
4) data collection part 2, this is also arising in the US via California and we are keeping a close eye

The prize is a gift card. There's no prize that requires shipping in this case. And the sponsor behind this offer is Canadian.

Here's a better solution: Offer contests that everyone who visits this site can enter, especially if the sponsor is *Canadian*. I have entered contests for gift cards on other sites that are actually based in the US that don't have any problem issuing a gift card to non-US site members.

Until we corporately get a legal go ahead of CASL consent compliance for giveaways on AVSForum then you will continue to see US-based winner selections.

Talk you your MP, I guess.
