SVOD CONTENT RATINGS

UNCOVERING ON-DEMAND AUDIENCES

Consumers today have access to more content than ever, and media companies have more opportunities to distribute their content across multiple channels. One of those channels, subscription video on-demand (SVOD) services, has seen significant growth in markets around the world and has created the need for content owners to understand the size and composition of their audiences relative to those watching other programs and platforms. Responding to this demand, Nielsen’s SVOD Content Ratings provides syndicated, independent measurement of subscription-based streamed content. SVOD Content Ratings, part of Nielsen’s Total Audience offerings, represents improved transparency within the SVOD marketplace.

With SVOD Content Ratings, clients gain a more comprehensive view of their content’s total audience regardless of where consumers view it. Data from this ground-breaking service provides insights into how viewers switch between linear and SVOD platforms. With SVOD Content Ratings, the marketplace has the ability to follow the full life cycle of a program: from live to time-shifted viewing to set-top-box video on-demand and now SVOD. As programs travel across multiple platforms in the television ecosystem, clients have Nielsen data to follow the path audiences take as they watch programs across multiple platforms in the television ecosystem, enabling content owners to effectively value their content and create comprehensive distribution strategies.
