On the heels of the announcement that it is acquiring Time Warner for $85.4 billion, AT&T reported it has added 323,000 customers to its DirecTV platform, growing it by 1.2 million since taking over in August 2015. So what about streaming service DirecTV Now, slated to launch in 4Q16? “The more we iterate and work on DirecTV Now, the more we get excited,” said Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T. “We think about what else we can do on this platform, such as incorporating social  the ability to clip content you’re watching and share it with your friends. We’re trying to develop those types of products with content providers, but it’s really hard to get these innovations on content done.” But by owning Timer Warner, “we can innovate our content must faster,” said Stephenson.

Nielsen announced it will use portable people meter technology to measure out-of-home viewing for national TV audiences. “Measuring where consumers watch content, regardless of platform and location, is at the core of Nielsen Total Audience, and this includes out-of-home viewing,” said Sara Erichson, EVP, Nielsen Client Solutions and Audience Insights. “This new measurement enables both buyers and sellers to understand the incremental reach of advertising messages.” The service for national television clients launches in April, with Live+7 data going back to January 2017.

What’s the benefit of the impending AT&T and Time Warner merger for advertisers? With addressable advertising across TV and mobile platforms, “We can make the advertising more interesting for your house,” said Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes during an analyst call on Monday. Advertiser will gain another outlet, added Bewkes, “not just Google and Facebook, which have all the traction. Now you have yet another advertising choice that’s equally efficient.” AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said data from subscribers will help tailor messages. “We’ll use the insights to expand the market for addressable advertising, and addressable advertising is far more effective and more valuable both to the advertiser and to our customers,” he noted. “Owning content will help us innovate on new advertising options, which combined with subscriptions will allow us to grow a two-sided business model to help pay for the cost of content creation.”

Morale of ad industry employees has fallen, with 47 percent reporting morale is “low” or “dangerously low,” according to the second annual Campaign US Morale Survey, versus 34 percent last year. “Seeing the numbers really crystallizes how serious an issue this is for advertising,” said Douglas Quenqua, editor-in-chief, Campaign US, “particularly as it fights with other industries for tech and creative talent.”
