The Rise Of Connected TV 

Due to the pandemic, marketers have been seeing a significant rise in Connected TV (CTV). In fact, according to eMarketer, “By next year, there will be more than 213 million CTV viewers in the U.S. streaming over a billion hours of video content.” 

Although there are still obstacles to face with CTV, like measurement challenges, the most crucial point to remember is that we’re communicating to people, not their streaming devices. CTV opens opportunities for you to create interactive and engaging content for your targeted audience, such as home shoppers.
