TiVo announces integration of key metrics into TV Viewership Data

TiVo is to incorporate demographics, ad airings and mobile devices into its TV Viewership Data product, the company has announced.

The product is being expanded to include Kantar ad occurrences, Drawbridge’s Identity Graph and premium demographic attributes. This will give TiVo customers an “expanded data offering with more flexibility to meet the ever-changing needs of the market”.

“Household-level TV data is becoming more attractive as the advertising and media industries look to connect consumer touchpoints across screens, platforms, and campaigns across the TV ecosystem,” said Ben Maughan, VP business development and data product management, TiVo.

“TiVo’s unique TV Viewership Data has been a leading innovator in the space and is constantly evolving into a more robust offering.”

Vik Sharma, SVP for media and tech at Kantar said: “Marketers rely on Kantar’s industry-leading ad intelligence data to track competitive activity in their sector. By connecting with TiVo TV Viewership Data, we can give our customers a holistic view of what messages consumers are receiving. We’re excited to continue providing clients with ad exposure data on a set-top-box level through our arrangement with TiVo.”

“TV’s power as an awareness channel is clear, but it’s long been missing the component of identity,” added Jon DeGennaro, VP of enterprise partnerships at Drawbridge. “There’s no reason why TV can’t be as targetable and measurable as other platforms and give marketers the ability to reach and report on viewership, engagement, and conversion across the entire cross-channel consumer journey. Bringing identity to TV does just that. We’re excited to be partnering with TiVo to enable these crucial tools.”
