iSpot Expands TV Ad Measurement and Attribution Offerings with TiVo

NEW YORK — March 25, 2020 — Leading, real-time TV ad measurement company iSpot.tv today announced it is integrating TiVo (NASDAQ: TIVO) into its always-on measurement and attribution platform. iSpot will utilize TiVo set-top TV data to supplement a broad set of capabilities the company has developed on top of its census-balanced and panel-calibrated measurement system, which covers all national linear, time-shifted and connected TV ad exposures across the U.S. 

TiVo’s TV data will help inform new secondary currencies being developed between iSpot’s brand clients and networks. With more than 35% of all TV spend now informed or optimized based on one or more of iSpot’s capabilities, leading brands are using the always-on platform for real-time competitive intelligence, TV impression-reach verification, second-by-second attention tracking, OTT measurement, and segment-based and predictive analytics. Customers also utilize a broad set of attribution capabilities across location, website activities, point-of-sale and industry-specific products from iSpot.

iSpot will integrate TiVo’s millions of U.S. households into its proprietary measurement system, which incorporates iSpot’s industry-leading ad catalog and real-time airings data with Inscape’s opt-in panel of 13.7 million VIZIO TVs. The pairing of TiVo’s deterministic set-top data with iSpot’s TV ad catalog and proprietary measurement – which matches TV ad and airings data with glass-level ACR –  gives brands unparalleled scale and transparency regarding the relationship between sales activity and ad exposures across linear, VOD and CTV sources. 

Taken together, the datasets will be used as ingredients to further refine new currencies such as business-outcome benchmarks which networks, agencies and brands are now using to make performance- and audience-based buys. “TiVo is excited to have its deterministic data become part of iSpot’s innovative measurement and attribution offerings for brands and networks,” says Walt Horstman, SVP and GM of TiVo’s Advanced Media and Advertising business unit. 

“The transformation of viewing data and the next-generation applications that are built on top of it create substantial value for the marketplace and help push the TV and advertising industry forward,” says iSpot CEO Sean Muller. “TiVo data gives us a broader pool of households for our industry leading applications to run on top of.” 

iSpot Lift Ratings provide TV networks, brands and agencies with reliable, predictable norms for the key performance measures of incremental lift and conversion across 17 industries. Today, employing iSpot’s always-on capabilities, TV networks can evaluate performance for advertising across a much broader landscape than age/gender demographics for a show and a likelihood of exposure to a household.
