adjust Brings Marketing Analytics To Connected TVs

With more than half of U.S. homes boasting a connected TV and viewing on streaming devices growing 380% in the first quarter, marketers are hoping to crack into this arena.

With Apple’s recent announcement of TVOS that allows their version of the connected TV to support the same content users get on their other devices, mobile app advertisers have a chance to make a small hop to a bigger screen.

adjust, a mobile analytics platform, has expanded its mobile ad analytics platform to support apps for the Apple TV.

iOS developers will be able to quickly port their iPad and iPhone apps to the Apple TV. adjust can now provide analytics for those efforts.

Connected TVs are in their early days as ad platforms, but they have the potential to be extremely disruptive to the TV ad space. Already, on-demand TV and movie streaming is altering the space for traditional models: Netflix is slated to surpass CBS, Fox, ABC and NBC for viewing by 2016.

Some analysts have noted that TVs are traditionally considered to be lift channels, better suited to branding and mass marketing. As connected TVs increase in popularity and cross-channel attribution becomes more accurate, that shift will change the medium. That allows marketers to produce more personalized ads across every device an individual uses.

Currently, only 43% of all marketers say they are familiar with connected TV, according to a study by the Association of National Advertisers and BrightLine. Half of marketers currently advertising on connected TVs say they will increase spending.

The main reason that marketers don’t engage with connected TVs is a lack of familiarity with the medium.

    Some rather interesting statements here. For example:

    "Netflix is slated to surpass CBS, Fox, ABC and NBC for viewing by 2016"

    Wow! Surely this can't refer to all four of the broadcast TV networks in combination...can it?

    Actually, if we take all dayparts together, Netflix content garners about 5-6% of oll viewing, while a typical broadcast network comes in at about 6-7% and all four of the "majors" lumped together, add up to roughly 22-23%. Now, among Netflix subscriber homes, of course, Netflix is, not surprisingly, the dominant force, capturing something like 20-25% of all viewing----but this is only within this particular universe, not the whole country.

    As regards, "connected" TV, one reason advertisers aren't hot on the trail of this newly emerging platform is the relatively minor amount of activity. Half of all TV homes may be "connected", but how much of their totalt video/TV consumption is derived in this manner?And how much of it is delivered by decent quality content that accepts advertising?
