Everything We Published on Connected TV Advertising This Year


What rhymes with “one two three” and is making big waves in the advertising industry?

Why, CTV, of course!

It feels like there wasn’t a single week in 2022 when connected TV (CTV) wasn’t in the news: from Amazon acquiring Thursday Night Football rights, to Netflix and Disney+ rolling out ad-supported tiers, to streaming viewership overtaking broadcast and cable in July, and more.

So, what’s with all the hubbub? Does the channel really offer that great of an opportunity?

In short: yes. With more and more people turning to CTV devices for their digital video content (nearly two-thirds of the US population this year), it makes sense that advertisers are upping their spend.

For marketers looking to make the most of this channel, there’s a lot to consider. Luckily, there’s also a ton of resources specifically designed to help you make sense of it all—and this list is the perfect place to start.
