LG Ad Solutions, a global leader in connected TV and cross-screen advertising, today released the findings of a new study that found that 84% of Canadian viewers like enhanced ads, and more than half (52%) will engage with them. Enhanced ads are Connected TV ads that include dynamic QR codes, change messaging based on time of day, are location specific or use weather to trigger relevant creative.
The majority of Canadian consumers (69%) are likely to engage with enhanced ads that show real-time sports scores or a countdown to games/events and team match-ups. In fact, enhanced ads with sports-related dynamic content are the most likely to improve brand favorability and purchase intent, with one in three viewers reporting a positive impact.
LG Ad Solutions surveyed more than 650 Canadian consumers who owned a connected TV in February 2023 to understand the value of enhanced ads and viewer preferences and attitudes towards them. The study, titled “Enhanced Ads: The Actionable Format,” also found:
One in two viewers are likely to engage with weather-triggered enhanced ads, and 69% like the idea of ads that factor in weather.
More than three-quarters (78%) of viewers like the idea of ads that provide closest store locations. Further, one in three viewers is likely to be favorable towards local extension enhanced ads.
Enhanced ads with QR codes had the lowest level of engagement at 43%, noting that QR codes lacking a clear call-to-action suffer in engagement. However, when done effectively, one in three viewers are likely to be favorable towards QR-enhanced ads and one in three are likely to purchase brands that use QR-enhanced ads.
Interactive ads are popular with viewers, as 62% prefer interactive ads to static or regular video ads. Contextual ads were also popular with viewers, as 77% liked ads that take into consideration the context in which the ad is being viewed.
"The results of this study reinforce the desire among consumers to have a more personalized advertising experience, receiving information that is timely and relevant to them,” said Jason Randall, Country Manager, Vice President of Sales, Canada, LG Ad Solutions. “Unlike traditional television, Connected TV provides brands a way to give viewers the experience they’re looking for and help drive better brand engagement through more interactive and compelling advertising content.”

Attain, a leading permissioned commerce data platform that powers real-time purchase measurement and outcome signals for brands, today announced a partnership with Magnite, the world's largest independent sell-side advertising company. Magnite will provide video buyers with measurement capabilities based on Attain's real-time commerce data. The capabilities are initially launching to clients leveraging Magnite's ClearLine offering, a self-service solution that provides buyers direct access to premium video inventory. The partnership will expand beyond Magnite's ClearLine clients in the near future. Attain is the largest permissioned purchase panel in the U.S. tracking over $500 million of purchase data every day.
Video has historically been considered a brand awareness medium given the challenges of connecting ad spend to performance metrics, including sales. Through this partnership, advertisers will be able to correlate their online video (OLV) and connected TV (CTV) ad spend through Magnite to performance metrics using Attain's data platform. As ad buyers encounter increased pressure to illustrate value, this collaboration provides the assurance brands need to drive more spend to OLV and CTV, thus empowering advertisers to capitalize on consumer attention.
"We joined Attain and Magnite as a launch partner because we believe this combined offering will revolutionize how we measure campaign performance and enhance our ability to prove value to brands," said Sam Bloom, CEO of Dallas-based marketing and media agency Camelot Strategic Marketing & Media. "With Attain and Magnite's expertise, we are confident in our ability to prove video's capacity and opportunity as a performance medium, which will yield significant benefits to our clients' businesses as well as our own."
Together, Attain and Magnite are optimizing results for buy-side and sell-side stakeholders. Attain's consumer purchase panel is balanced to the U.S. census, consumption and behavior patterns, enabling a real-time, holistic view of consumer spending across all verticals and merchants. This data is utilized to quantify the business impact of programmatic media investments for marketers with real-time measurement of conversion rate, return on ad spend (ROAS), and incremental sales lift. Built on Magnite's technologies in deal-driven video, ClearLine significantly increases spend going towards working media and helps publishers generate more revenue and develop new sources of unique demand.
"By joining forces, Attain and Magnite are at the forefront of advancing measurement capabilities for video," said Magnite's SVP of Partnerships, Kristen Williams. "Combining the engaging, impactful experience of video with data-driven measurement backed by real-time permissioned purchase data introduces powerful opportunities for advertisers to optimize their campaigns and track ROAS. This partnership reflects our commitment to innovation, enabling more informed advertising strategies and ultimately delivering superior results for brands and publishers."
"Attain is a mission-driven data business, focused on building services that provide unique and differentiated value to our partners," said Attain CEO, Brian Mandelbaum. "With our real-time measurement capabilities and ClearLine's best-in-class route to premium video inventory, advertisers will be able to better understand the impact of their campaigns with close proximity to supply — ultimately helping them refine their approach to maximize results and drive business growth."
