Tubi To Use TransUnion Data For Ad Targeting

Tubi, the ad-supported video-on-demand service acquired by Fox Corporation for $440 million last month, has struck a deal with TransUnion to use consumers’ information to target ads and “personalize” content. 

The deal represents another move toward media use of so-called “connected consumer identity.” 

Combining privacy-compliant access to the extensive individual consumer data in TransUnion’s massive database with Tubi’s tracking of users’ content consumption behavior via household device IDs will let the AVOD “bridge the gap between individual and household,” and inform analytical decisions about what content to deliver and recommend to users, as well as ad targeting decisions, says Tubi. 

“With identifiers such as third-party cookies on the decline and media consumption changing, alternative identifiers such as home IP address are imperative for building a strong foundation of individual-level identity and reaching consumers on devices like connected TVs,” said Tubi Chief Revenue Officer Mark Rotblat.

    NOOOOO. Just stop it. People want more privacy and less tracking, not the other way around.

    Maybe we as consumers should start tracking entities such as Tubi and TransUnion.
