📺 CTV Ad Engagement Increases and Controversial News Ads Drive Results
Insights from Retail Dive 

New research uncovers key trends in advertising, indicating rising consumer engagement with connected TV (CTV) ads and the effective performance of ads placed alongside controversial news content.

The Breakdown:

CTV Ad Engagement: According to DoubleVerify and TVision, U.S. viewer engagement with CTV ads climbed to 51.5% in Q1 2024 from 49.2% in the previous quarter. Premium CTV apps now lead with 56.1% engagement, surpassing linear TV ads. The report highlighted increased CTV ad volume in major brand categories, with households primarily using three or fewer apps like YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu. Shorter ad breaks garnered the highest attention, with engagement peaking during early morning hours.

Controversial News Ads: Stagwell's "Future of News Study" found that ads next to controversial topics such as inflation and crime perform comparably to those next to safe subjects like sports. Avoiding these topics could limit campaign reach since 25% of Americans consider themselves "news junkies." Among Gen Z, the purchase intent for ads near Middle East conflict stories was only slightly lower than for sports content. 

These findings highlight the changing landscape of advertising, with CTV gaining popularity and controversial news articles presenting effective ad opportunities. As media consumption evolves, advertisers need to refine their strategies to effectively capture audience attention across diverse platforms and content types.
