iSpot uses Person-Level Demographics and Co-Viewing Metrics from TVision's Panel to Calibrate Their Solution and Provide an Accurate Measure of Who is Really Watching TV
As the TV industry looks to move beyond arcane measurement systems into a future that supports accurate CTV and cross-platform measurement, visionary companies are racing to develop alternative currencies for the buying and selling of TV media. Foundational to any of these measurement solutions is an accurate, person-level understanding of who is watching TV.
iSpot.tv, which reports on both TV ads and program impressions, is at the vanguard of new TV measurement solutions. In fact, NBCU recently recognized it as a front runner in their Measurement Look Book.

TVision is proud to partner with iSpot.tv to provide person-level calibration data from the TVision panel and support iSpot.tv's development of an alternative currency for TV.
A critical aspect of iSpot.tv’s overall measurement solution is demo-specific projections and co-viewing data. TVision, which operates a passive, opt-in panel is able to provide person-level data for who is watching both TV programming and ads. This data is delivered overnight and used to calibrate iSpot.tv's larger household-level data set so that they can provide immediate, and accurate reporting on audience size.
With TVision, iSpot.tv:
With the help of TVision’s data, iSpot.tv supported NBCUniversal’s audience verification initiatives for both ads and program ratings. These currencies were tested during the 2022 Olympic Winter Games and the Super Bowl LVI. In early testing, iSpot.tv was able to accurately report a co-viewing rate as high as 1.8 for portions of the NFL championships. By accurately capturing the true size of the viewing audience, iSpot.tv enables its network, agency, and brand clients to fully understand the value of programming and content.
Sean Muller, CEO and founder of iSpot.tv explains, “By calibrating our extrapolated household-level demographics to data from TVision’s panel we can provide person and demographic level data. Their co-viewing data is an important and necessary component to our solution and our support of NBC’s programming for The Olympics and the Super Bowl.”
