Cross-device CTV advertising
Connected TV ad allows marketers to reach a specific target audience across all their devices.
Users are often active on social media when watching TV. According to YuMe research, 87% of consumers use their smartphones and tablets when watching digital content on a CTV. They mostly post about show or film on social media or look for reviews on products featured.
