Yesterday’s surfer is today’s streamer, with millions cutting the cord of traditional broadcast and opting for a more customizable viewing experience through Connected TV (CTV). It’s estimated that by next year, nearly 200 million CTV users will be turning to apps and streaming devices to consumer content and stay informed. And the type of that content matters. Nearly 50% of consumers are getting more news coverage today than they were in 2017, and 29% feel more favorable toward brands advertising on news sites they trust.
