As the streaming wars heat up, March 2021 was a big month for Netflix. Not only did its shows lead the pack for engaging viewers, but the brand's own ads also ranked in the top spot for capturing audience attention.
When it came to streaming content, shows from Disney+, Peacock, and Amazon Prime narrowly prevented a clean sweep by Netflix across all categories (Co-Viewing, Binge Rate & Attention Index). Meanwhile, B Positive on CBS captured the best Ad Attention for broadcast TV.
In March 2021, ads from Dawn, HEARTGARD Plus, and Applebee's performed the best at breaking through and capturing audience attention.
