Yahoo Further Expands its CTV Measurement Suite with Comscore, iSpot, and Samba TV

These new partnerships will elevate transparency and performance for customers of the Yahoo DSP

New York, NY – June  25, 2024Yahoo DSP today announced the expansion of its measurement capabilities through strategic partnerships with leading providers Comscore, iSpot, and Samba TV. These partnerships underscore the commitment the Yahoo DSP has in providing advertisers with robust, third-party measurement solutions to optimize their Connected TV (CTV) advertising campaigns and beyond. 

As CTV advertising investments continue to increase, so does the need for comprehensive CTV measurement. In response, TV measurement providers are innovating as the landscape shifts towards a multi-currency reality, and advertisers require partners that align well with their diverse campaign strategies, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.

To meet those needs, the Yahoo DSP has invested in building a broader measurement partner ecosystem. In addition to existing partnerships with Vizio Inscape and DIRECTV, we recently announced that the Yahoo DSP would be the first DSP to integrate with VideoAmp. Now we are continuing to expand new capabilities for Yahoo DSP customers in partnership with Comscore, iSpot, and Samba TV. These enhancements provide optionality, enabling advertisers to more effectively measure CTV campaigns within the Yahoo DSP through the provider of their choice.

 "The importance of transparency and accuracy in advertising measurement can not be understated, especially within CTV environments,” said Adam Roodman, SVP of Product Strategy and Management at Yahoo. “By partnering with industry leaders we are empowering our clients with the tools they need to more effectively and efficiently measure and optimize their CTV campaigns. These partnerships reflect our commitment to innovation and excellence in ad measurement across all channels."

Our new measurement partners provide unique and comprehensive solutions to support Yahoo DSP advertisers:

  • iSpot: iSpot, a cross-platform TV and video measurement company offering currency-grade solutions, empowers Yahoo DSP customers with cross screen measurement and conversion analytics.
