70% of Connected TV viewers also have a cable subscription.

 

Cable and Connected TV Go Hand in Hand

While Connected TV is making huge strides to becoming the new way people watch television, it’s not there yet. According to the VAB, the vast majority of CTV subscribers also have cable subscriptions, making CTV a piece (albeit a big one) of the media mix for many viewers.

What does this mean for marketers? CTV can play an important role in brands’ media mix by supplementing and expanding the reach and impact of traditional TV campaigns. According to research conducted by Roku, running CTV ads alongside traditional TV ads increases brand favorability by 99%. By running CTV and traditional ads together, brands can see an enormous, positive impact on their reputation.
