Comcast Technology Solutions and PremiumMedia360 Integration Enables Advertisers to Automate TV Data Management in Media Lifecycle

Comcast Technology Solutions, PremiumMedia360 | May 26, 2021

Comcast Technology Solutions (CTS), a Comcast Cable division that delivers media and entertainment technology to advertisers, agencies, and content providers, and PremiumMedia360, the market leader in TV advertising data automation, announced a new strategic partnership today. The CTS Ad Management Platform integration allows TV advertising buyers and sellers to automatically synchronize and solve reconciliation inconsistencies throughout the ad buy lifecycle. These new capabilities have the potential to avoid revenue loss caused by dropped spots as a result of order execution errors and invoicing delays. The integration can save work hours that otherwise would have been spent on solving data inconsistencies between buyer and seller systems.

"TV media has always been a science of managing and accessing information for more accurate buys and more effective media operations," said Richard Nunn, Vice President and General Manager of Comcast Technology Solutions' Advertising Suite. "At the same time, between multiple systems, manual inputs, and a lack of standardization, accessing that data quickly and accurately has been an ongoing challenge—made even more difficult by the ever-increasing screens and video outlets to manage." Our mutual clients will now have access to the Ad Management Platform's quick insights and actionable data as a result of our integration. This enables them to optimize and execute swiftly across the media landscape. CTS and PremiumMedia360 are collaborating to fill the gap between workflow and opportunity."

"PremiumMedia360 is a company built on automating and streamlining data exchange – and amplifying value – between TV buyers and sellers," said Cordie DePascale, PM360's Chief Strategy Officer. "That's an even more pressing need in light of recent changes in the tv landscape. With increasing emphasis on efficiency and insight, as well as cross-screen advertising and digitization, there is much more data to handle—and faster data is a must-have. To address these issues, the integration of CTS and PM360 will offer our joint clients instant access to important information to analyze, evaluate, execute, and report back to stakeholders—even in the middle of a project—saving them countless hours they currently spend on those tasks. That rapid insight is a true win for both of our companies' clients at a critical juncture in the evolution of TV media."

AppsFlyer Survey Finds 98% of Brands Believe that Connected TV Advertising will be Bigger than Mobile Advertising

AppsFlyer | October 28, 2022

AppsFlyer has released its new survey report, Connected TV Trends, 2022-23, Advertiser and Viewer Perceptions, that combines viewer and brand insights on the rapidly evolving Connected TV (CTV) space. The growth of CTV devices and platforms has spurred interest and popularity for advertising, and the survey found that currently, 64% of businesses are running direct response campaigns on CTV. Advertising on CTV also allows brands to expand reach, measure cross-platform, cross-device campaigns and better target consumers with relevant, contextual ads. With that in mind, for advertisers, understanding consumer preferences and habits regarding CTV, including how they feel about commercials, the dollar value they place on ad-free content, and how likely they are to download apps resulting from CTV ads, is extremely beneficial. Key Findings: 98% of businesses believe that CTV advertising will be bigger than mobile advertising. The vast majority of brands think that CTV advertising will overtake mobile advertising, and a quarter of respondents say that this will happen in the next 2 to 3 years. According to brands, the reasons to advertise on CTV include engaging with new audiences (73%), increasing engagement levels (73%) and driving higher lifetime value (50%). Half of viewers in North America downloaded mobile apps after watching a CTV ad. Globally, 40% of consumers have downloaded mobile apps following seeing advertisements for an app. Additionally, 53% of consumers say they are likely, or very likely, to do this using QR codes. 86% of consumers are willing to see ads on CTV, especially if they are relevant to them. There’s a widespread misconception that mid-stream ads could drive viewers away, but in reality, consumers may not mind ads as much as brands think. Only 40% of viewers say that they will stop watching CTV if there are too many ads. On average consumers are happy to watch 1.7 ads within 30 minutes of content, but this number takes a 220% leap to 5.8 ads if they are relevant to the viewer. Brands rank smart TVs as top priority, but are disregarding platforms that many viewers use to watch CTV platforms, gaming consoles. Additionally, when given the option to target consumers by the content they are watching, the top content categories brands are targeting are not necessarily aligned with the content that consumers are actually watching. For example, 64% are targeting sports and fitness, while only 42% of consumers are watching this content. In the other direction, 62% of consumers are watching documentary content, but only 26% of businesses are targeting that content. “CTV is a huge opportunity, allowing marketers to engage with a whole new segment of potential users,” said Gil Meroz, VP of Innovation and General Manager, AppsFlyer. “For brands, now is the perfect time to start advertising on CTV before it becomes a heavily crowded and saturated space. The earlier you get into a new channel, the more you get out of it.” “CTV is a huge opportunity, allowing marketers to engage with a whole new segment of potential users,” said Gil Meroz, VP of Innovation and General Manager, AppsFlyer. Methodology: We commissioned a survey of 500 consumers who watch CTV, and are between the ages of 26 and 50, and 200 Director – C-suite employees from MarTech and Marketing departments. Business respondents all work at Gaming, Retail or FinTech companies with between 200-10k employees, have built a mobile app, and have, or plan to have, a Direct Response campaign on CTV to drive mobile conversions. Respondents from both surveys come from North America, Europe and APAC.
