Parks Associates research shows that internet household spending on streaming subscription services has declined 25% to $73 per month versus $90 in 2021. Meanwhile, nearly one-third (31%) of households used free ad-based services by the end of 2022 -- posting the fourth consecutive year of market share growth since 2019.  

“Leveraging data to provide relevant content and digital advertisements to keep viewers engaged is crucial, and tricky. Data is fragmented across operating systems and applications, and viewer consent is required,” said Jennifer Kent, VP, Research, Parks Associates. "The next generation of TV and CTV advertising should not replicate traditional linear, pay-TV ad formats and models but offer interactive, actionable, secure, and enjoyable experiences that engage video viewers and attract ad dollars.”

The webinar will provide insight into the changing relationship between consumers and video content, as more options enter the market and younger demographic consumers shift to viewing video on devices. Parks Associates and Adeia will present research and insights from the just-published white paper, Overcoming Complexity: Advertising in a Fragmented Landscape, and discuss how advertising is evolving to accommodate new ad-supported streaming models and privacy practices for a more engaging and targeted experience.

“Concerns around inflation and streaming services price hikes are driving consumers to dynamically choose the streaming services that they subscribe to each month. As a result, AVOD services have risen in popularity, adding to the fragmentation of target audiences for advertisers and brands,” said Jean-Yves Couleaud, Senior Director of Advanced R&D for Adeia. “Leveraging first-party data is helpful for advertising; however, this first-party data as well as ad reporting are still locked within each streaming service. We, as industry technologists, are looking for technological solutions that will federate advertising opportunities and reporting across the disparate streaming landscape.”

The webinar features the following industry experts:
⦁    Jean-Yves Couleaud, Senior Director Advanced R&D, Adeia
⦁    Bhavan Gandhi, Engineering Director, formerly of IAS
⦁    Tim Hanlon, Founder and CEO, Vertere Group, LLC

The webinar will include insights on the growth of ad-supported streaming models, user preferences related to ad-supported streaming, and a comprehensive exploration of the advantages and disadvantages of placing ads in traditional versus streaming media.
