Viggle to Deliver Insights into the Impact of the Second Screen

04/23/2013 | 09:20am US/Eastern

Nielsen Studies to Shed Light on Second Screen and TV Promotions, Tune in and Ad Effectiveness

Viggle (Symbol: VGGL), a free cutting-edge mobile app that operates an intelligent "second screen" for television, today announced research conducted with Nielsen that delves into the power of the second screen for achieving TV tune-in and brand effectiveness.

The work Viggle commissioned from Nielsen will provide clients with an entirely new view of the value of the second screen through two studies, which will be issued later this year. They will focus on the following:

  • Television Tune-in and Engagement: The study will investigate how the second screen drives users to watch promoted programs and encourages deeper engagement with shows among consumers.
  • Cross-Media Advertising Effectiveness: The study will offer a deeper look into the experiences of three participating brands. Specifically, it will enable the brands to understand the second screen's impact on ad effectiveness metrics - ad memorability, brand and message recall, likeability, and purchase intent - and the extent to which lift occurs by extending a television advertising buy to the second screen.

"Viggle's lead in the second screen TV space has given us an unparalleled advantage when it comes to observing how the second screen is changing consumer behavior," said Greg Consiglio, President and COO of Viggle. "Not only are our users tuning in to shows we promote but now, our platform is playing a growing role in their viewing experience, including real-time engagement and driving sustained viewing throughout a season."

"Second-screen viewing has grown from a fringe behavior to a commonplace activity, with close to 40 percent of Americans using their tablets or smartphones while watching TV at least once a day," said Scott McKinley, EVP, Advertising Effectiveness, Nielsen. "This research will help networks and brands understand how best to bridge the gap between their broadcast ad buys and consumers' ubiquitous second screen devices."

This work is being conducted by Nielsen in conjunction with Nielsen's Innovation Lab, which launched in summer 2012 to spur pioneering ideas and better, faster advancements in the area of advertising effectiveness.
