Programmatic is Coming to Local Broadcast TV
Wed. November 9 | 11:15 AM – 11:45 AM
The local TV industry is developing a new personality based on an emerging set of solutions and initiatives around data-driven audience targeting advertising. This includes programmatic TV, addressable and ad-supported video on demand television platforms. The core value proposition of programmatic TV is that it can add efficiency and accuracy to the buying and selling of TV inventory. Programmatic TV supports more precise audience targeting beyond the traditional age and gender. We analyze four impediments to the success of programmatic TV: lack of transparency, potential for sales channel conflicts, concerns about reach and frequency unduplicated across channels, and data and universe standardized definitions.
Session produced in partnership with BIA/Kelsey.
