The accelerated trend of smartTV and streaming-service adoption was fueled largely by pandemic lockdowns. Consumers expect more choice, flexibility and control. As a result, the landscape of what was once solely linear TV is changing; most people now include streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and YouTube when they think of “television” formats.
It’s not a fad: A recent study shows the percentage of adults watching video daily via connected TV device remains at the same level as 2020.
- The report noted 82% of TV households in the US have at least one connected TV device (a higher penetration rate than cable TV.)
- TV viewers between 18-34 are reported as the biggest daily users, with some 54% watching videos via CTV device.
- 43% of those aged 35-54 are daily watchers as are 22% of people 55+
By the end of 2022, expectations are that CTV viewers will grow to over 213 million, streaming a billion hours plus of video content each week.
While CTV might very well become the most critical digital advertising channel for advertisers in 2023, major challenges like a lack of transparency on where CTV ads run and how they perform remain.
Today we are proud to announce our Transparency Report for CTV which will give marketers new levels of insights on metrics across the Shows, Content, and Channels they are running on for their ad buys through CTV publishers and broadcasters.
CTV data availability varies widely across platforms and even within reporting. Even source information is not always consistent.
Just a few of the problems in reporting:
- Campaign Reporting showing inconsistent and indecipherable app IDs or bundle IDs.
- An inability to tie reporting insights into granular actionable optimization strategies
- Lack of show-level granularity
- Lack of information about content categories, channel, and quality of production.
We’ve heard the frustrations from advertisers and brands.
