Spectrum Reach Delivers at Ad Week

by Jenn Menendez, Manager Communications Content Production

NEW YORK, NY – Spectrum Reach made a splash at Advertising Week on Tuesday delivering key insights on the power of TV advertising in a digital landscape.

Reach, in partnership with 605, was a presenting sponsor at the event, and hosted The Data Impact Summit. The summit brought together programmers, distributors, marketers and data companies to share thoughts on how to use data to inform their approach to targeting, and measuring advertising campaigns.

David Kline, Executive Vice President at Charter Communications and President of Spectrum Reach, hosted a fireside chat along with 605 Founder and CEO Kristin Dolan to discuss the state of TV advertising, and compel industry leaders to recognize the value of banding together.

“I think five years from now you will see networks and distributors work much more closely together,” said Kline. “We need each other … We’ve got the platforms and all the ingredients to put up a real fight for digital as well as linear dollars.”

At the start of Ad Week, Spectrum Reach announced the completed rollout of AudienceApp, the data-driven TV planning tool developed in partnership with 605, now available in more than 80 markets. The state-of-the art tool allows marketers to execute more effective advertising campaigns by utilizing Spectrum’s proprietary household viewing data to better identify and target the right consumers.

“It’s revolutionized what we do,” said Kline. “We are using it in over 80 markets and see tremendous results.”

AudienceApp uses anonymized and aggregated subscriber viewing data, combined with third-party consumer data, to target specific consumer attributes. Rather than relying on dated demographic segments and incomplete audience measurement data, clients have much more targeted household viewing data to plan campaigns. To date, AudienceApp has led to the production of nearly 4 million ads that have run across top categories from automotive, healthcare, retail, legal, education, and real estate.
