FuboTV | October 04, 2022
FuboTV Inc. (NYSE: FUBO), the leading sports-first live TV streaming platform, announced today a significant improvement on advertising campaigns transacted using Unified ID 2.0 (UID 2.0) through The Trade Desk’s platform. The first connected TV (CTV) partner to adopt the open-source, interoperable identity initiative, FuboTV has since seen a spend growth rate 112.8% faster than the increase in available impressions. This means advertisers were able to more precisely serve ads, while FuboTV was able to maximize yield and efficiencies for its available inventory, which is entirely addressable, premium video content.
A success for both the buy side and sell side, advertiser spend increased by 61.5% year-over-year, ad impressions increased by 25% year-over-year in addition to an increase in CPMs year-over-year for campaigns transacted through FuboTV using the identity solution.
Advertisers leveraging UID 2.0 can seamlessly tap into first-party data across devices including CTV to achieve reach and scale. In fact, an e-commerce retailer with a large first-party CRM data set that was using UID 2.0 saw better than average performance on campaigns transacted through FuboTV’s ad inventory. Cost per action (CPA) was reduced by 9%, conversion rate was 25% stronger and return on ad spend (ROAS) improved by 14% when compared to overall average campaign performance.
Unified ID 2.0 is a new industry-wide approach to internet identity that aims to preserve the value of relevant advertising while prioritizing consumer privacy and transparency. The solution also decreases the industry’s reliance on third-party cookies, which only account for browser-based environments.
“As the first CTV partner to adopt Unified ID 2.0, FuboTV is constantly innovating to remain at the forefront of advertising technology for streaming,” said Chris Flatley, VP, advertising sales, FuboTV.

Emodo | October 13, 2022
Emodo, the intelligent exchange creating more memorable connections through personal, relevant and rewarding advertising experiences, today announced the launch of Adapt, a rich and dynamically-optimized native ad offering that drives increased engagement and higher impact for brands and advertisers. This ad offering is transforming the next era of programmatic advertising by enabling personalized storytelling and sustainable KPIs.
“With its one size-fits-all approach, standard native advertising is no longer enough for advertisers and brands,” said Tom Anderson, Chief Marketplace Development Officer at Emodo. “Our innovative advanced native offering brings a richer and smarter approach to advertising, presenting brands with a dynamic, attention-grabbing ad format to drive engagement and performance, and publishers with a new revenue opportunity through an exclusive, differentiated ad format, as well as a better user experience that aligns with their website’s context and aesthetic.”
Adapt native ads are built via Emodo’s creative rendering engine, which has the ability to layer on various effects including loading, image, text, call-to-actions, layouts and styling to create limitless permutations of an ad unit. Emodo then leverages its artificial intelligence-powered dynamic optimizer to understand the most optimal features and generate captivating designs for publishers and their audiences. This cutting edge technology unlocks new capabilities for creative testing and performance at scale that are not available in traditional native formats.
In support of its Adapt launch, today, Emodo has also released brand-new survey data on consumer affinity for native advertisements. The survey included standard display, standard native and Adapt native ads across three different publishers’ pages, and used eye-tracking to understand engagement with the various different ad formats. Findings include:
Across three campaigns tested, whenever viewable, the Adapt unit drove statistically significantly more Attention as compared to any other unit tested, at the 95% confidence interval, holding campaign, publisher, unit size, audience, and everything else constant.
For an automotive campaign, Adapt drove 13% higher Message Association as compared to either a standard Display or a standard Native unit
Adapt drove an 71% higher lift in Message Association as compared to Static Native for a Discount Clothing Retailer.
For a CPG campaign, Emodo’s unit drove 17% higher attention (time spent via eye-tracking) as compared to standard Display, and 11% higher attention as compared to standard Native.
“Social platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Snap have proven that highly optimized native executions are impactful but have, until now, only been available behind their walls,” continued Anderson. “By bringing our future-proof innovations to the market, we are elevating the opportunities for advertisers beyond the walled gardens and staying ahead of the curve.”
In an effort to double down on more impactful advertising, Emodo has also refreshed its brand mission and focus: to build more memorable connections through its global exchange, making advertising more impactful for brands and profitable for publishers. Emodo leverages rich, dynamic creative experiences, such as Adapt, augmented reality, and shoppable ads, to help advertisers capture attention and build brand love. This, paired with ID-independent targeting and better science, fuels personalization and drives performance.
“As we look toward the future, our intention in this next era of Emodo is to bring richer, more sophisticated approaches to personalized advertising experiences,” added Alistair Goodman, CEO of Emodo.
