New York Times Shows Growth Everywhere But Advertising

adexchanger | February 06, 2020

The New York Times posted strong results stemming from digital subscriptions; Facebook licensing revenue; its new TV show, The Weekly; Wirecutter and its Crossword and Cooking apps. But advertising wasn’t a bright spot. Coming off a tough comparison quarter, advertising declined 10.7% year-over-year to $171.3 million. Advertising accounts for one-third of total revenue. Overall Q4 revenue rose 1.1% as the Times’ two other revenue categories grew, offsetting advertising’s decline. Subscriptions grew 4.5% to $275.3 million. And “other” revenue, which includes new Facebook licensing revenue, The Weekly TV show and Wirecutter, grew 30% to $61.8 million.

Roku Announces Primetime Reach Guarantee Ahead of TV Upfronts

Business Wire | April 20, 2023

Reach more TV households in primetime than you can find on the average program airing on a top-five cable network* — that’s a first from Roku, Inc. (Nasdaq: ROKU) with its new Primetime Reach Guarantee ahead of the TV Upfronts. Marketers have long valued TV advertising for its ability to reach large audiences quickly. Today, brands are shifting advertising spend to TV streaming to follow the consumer. According to eMarketer, the daily average time spent with TV streaming devices by U.S. adults increased by 25 percent in the past two years. However, advertisers have lacked assurance that their TV streaming campaigns will accumulate audiences quickly during key brand moments, such as holiday shopping weekends and big product launches. Now, Primetime Reach Guarantee brings a key benefit of cable advertising to TV streaming advertising. To get started, marketers choose a primetime date. Roku then prioritizes delivery to unique households across The Roku Channel and the additional top 100 channels on the platform. In a pilot with one financial services brand, Roku reached more TV households during the one-day flight during primetime (8:00-11:00 PM locally) than an average program on a top-five cable network. Total household reach was 15% greater with Roku, helping the brand reach more prospective account holders during a key moment. “This is a best-of-both-worlds solution to make brands unmissable,” said Kristina Shepard, Co-Head of US Brand Sales, Roku. “TV streaming has long brought precision and measurement to the largest screen in the home. Now, marketers can launch campaigns knowing they will deliver meaningful reach and impact quickly, too.” This first-of-its-kind offering from Roku is available to buy directly from Roku, including programmatically through OneView. Roku is uniquely positioned to use tech, data, and machine learning to maximize reach and manage frequency. As the #1 TV streaming platform in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico**, Roku brings the scale that marketers have appreciated in cable to the streaming era with 70 million active accounts. To learn more about Primetime Reach Guarantees, please visit our blog. About Roku, Inc. Roku pioneered streaming on TV.
