NewFronts: FuboTV Offers Custom Audience Segments to Advertisers


Sports-oriented streaming TV service fuboTV said it can create custom audience segments for advertisers.

At its NewFront presentation Thursday, fuboTV said it uses its first-party data to track the behavior of target users based on the exact content they watch and the amount of time they spend with it anywhere on the platform.

Audiences can be defined as light, moderate or heavy viewers of specific sports, leagues or content genres.

FuboTV also said it can identify and reach purchase intenders using existing first-party addressable, contextual, behavioral and demographic targeting capabilities.
