The Sell Sider...Leveraging A DMP As A Sales Channel And Not Just A Platform

Story Time

Advertising is coming to Facebook Stories, a sleeper hit on the Facebook platform that draws 150 million daily active users.

Today more than half of its direct-to-consumer subscriptions on streaming platforms like Apple TV or Roku come through Amazon Prime, according to data from The Diffusion Group. Rivals like Showtime and Starz are even more reliant on Amazon. Apple is changing its streaming app to be more like Amazon, likely because Amazon’s curated homepage and content discovery quickly outstripped Apple’s and Google’s app store. More.
