Viewership numbers have dipped by about 20%.

TikTok and the UFC have inked a multi-year partnership that delivers live, weekly mixed-martial arts content toTikTok. “Now more than ever, sports fans are craving the up-close-and-personal moments they are missing by not attending live events,” said Harish Sarma, TikTok’s Director of Global Strategic Partnerships. “Through this partnership, we are excited to bring to TikTok, the action and excitement of UFC.”

Roku beat analysts’ expectations with revenue of $650 million, up 58% from year-ago. Users streamed 17 billion hours in 4Q20, and more than 58 billion hours in 2020, a 55% year-over-year increase. The company also reported 49 cents earnings per share, versus the 6 cents Wall Street had projected.

TECH TALK

With the industry moving away from third-party cookies, Nielsen is rolling out an approach that shifts to privacy-centric, people-based identifiers for attribution.
Identity Sync is a non-campaign specific tag that doesn’t depend on device IDs or the browser ecosystem, enabling always-on, real-time collection of advertiser data associated with individuals, the devices they use over time and the online actions they take. In addition, it allows Nielsen to build deterministic matches between consumers and their ad exposures using persistent identifiers as the connector to each conversion event. Early findings have shown that shifting from a cookie-based solution to Nielsen’s solution provides more accurate marketing measurement. Nielsen noted Barceló Hotel Group’s use of the Identity Sync provided a significant view of the customer journey. “With Nielsen’s innovative approach, we were able to take into account all measurable interactions along our customers’ journey and uncover waste to better allocate spend in the future,” said Johanna Álvarez, Adtech, Analytics & Attribution Manager at Barceló. “The level of accuracy that Nielsen was able to produce using persistent identifiers was unmatched, and we feel more empowered than ever to make better marketing decisions as the industry moves away from cookies.”

TV Squared and Experian have teamed to offer deterministic TV ad measurement to media publishers, agencies and advertisers. TVSquared’s technology will power the combined linear TV ad measurement offering, and Experian’s data and identity assets will be integrated into the ADVantage platform to provide more robust audience insights for advanced TV campaigns. “Experian is the gold standard for marketing data that advertisers want to leverage and measure against,” said Bob Ivins, Chief Strategy Officer, TVSquared. “With Experian’s data in ADvantage and ADvantage XP, we’re empowering advertisers to put audiences at the center of their TV strategies, providing always-on measurement to identify not only the audiences reached, but also those most responsive to their campaigns.”
