Houston startup has created a less intrusive video advertising experience

innovationmap | April 18, 2019

Steven Jones knows people dislike ads. Actually, he reasons, it's less that they dislike ads, but more that they don't like having those ads interrupt what they're doing. "They want to be in control of their experience," he says. "And we've nearly always had things that allow consumers to skip ads – the remote control, where you could change the channel; now there are DVRs that let you skip them. That's all about control."Jones knows, however, that consumers do want the information ads contain. And he thinks one of the best ways to give that to them in this splintered and ever-changing media environment is for advertisers to concede that concept of audience control. That's what LogoBar aims to do. Where a traditional commercial on television or before an online video might be 15 or 30 seconds, LogoBar features a company's logo or a product it's selling on a pop-up bar at the bottom of a screen. It's there when a television viewer hits pause on the DVR remote; it will be there along the bottom of an online video. The viewer, if interested in the product can then choose to engage with it by clicking on the offer that's being advertised or on the product itself, which would then take that viewer to the advertiser's site.

Streaming TV reached a record high in April-Nielsen

Nielsen | May 23, 2022

Nielsen's monthly total TV viewing snapshot, The Guage, reported April as another month of high records for streaming. Streaming captured 30.4% of full TV viewing and surpassed its previous record of 29.7% set in March 2022. While overall TV viewership fell by 2.1% in March, streaming volume remained nearly unchanged, helping to boost its share by over 0.6%. Even though Netflix said it lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter, which sent its shares into a tailspin, its share price stayed at 6.6%. YouTube had a 6.1 %, which is up from a 6.0 %. Hulu had a 3.3 %, which stayed the same. Amazon Prime Video had a 2.5 %, up from 2.3%, and Disney Plus had a 1.7 %, which is down from 1.8 %. Other streamers had 9.2% of the market, less than the 9.8% they had before. Nielsen said that a significant drop in sports viewing and the end of seasons and series of dramas hurt the share of broadcast. With the NBA playoffs and the final games of the Final Four, people were watching sports on cable. However, 16.9% fewer people watched cable news. The Gauge also showed that HBO Max reached a 1% share of streaming for the first time. This achievement allowed it to move out of the "Other Streaming" category and join other streaming services that have already passed the 1% share mark. The "Other Streaming" category, which includes all high-bandwidth video streaming on TV that isn't broken out separately, has grown by more than two share points since The Gauge was first released in May 2021. According to Nielsen's State of Play report, this category's steady growth shows that audiences are becoming more interested in the growing number of streaming platforms.
