Data Drives TV Measurement’s Next Generation

Big shift: TV networks are turning to analytics firms to gain deeper insight into their viewers.

Why is this happening? Advertisers (buy side) are increasingly using customer data to plan/buy advertising giving them an information advantage into the value of networks (sell side) inventory. Networks are starting to use the same tools to maximize the value/yield of their inventory.

Quote from Radha Subramanyam — VP/Chief Research and Analytics Officer @ CBS:
“Everyone knows TV works. Everyone knows premium video works. And now we just have more and more ways of proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that it works better than any medium.”
