STERLING, Va. and ENGLEWOOD, Colo.-- Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today announced its expansion into addressable TV ad targeting and measurement through a partnership with DISH Media Sales, a leader in addressable and advanced advertising. Neustar expands its expertise in omnichannel marketing analytics and identity management by offering marketers the ability to deliver audience-based targeting on television and measure how addressable advertising performs across platforms. The partnership enhances DISH’s advanced consumer profiles, enabling marketers to utilize Neustar consumer data to granularly target DISH’s nearly 8 million U.S. addressable television households. This approach allows brands to reduce wasted media spending and to measure the overall effectiveness of marketing activities.
Through the partnership with Neustar and DISH, advertisers can build addressable TV audiences based on their own Customer Relationship Management (CRM) data, a partner’s data or third-party data, delivering relevant messages to targeted households. Addressable television advertising gives advertisers the ability to better reach the right audience, with the right message by incorporating demographic and psychographic attributes, such as car ownership, or leisure preferences.
“TV is going through a renaissance and promises to reinvent itself in a way that aligns with how consumers want to engage with brands,” said Steven Wolfe Pereira, chief marketing and communications officer of Neustar. "With the proliferation of media and the multi-screen behavior of consumers accelerating rapidly, marketers have the opportunity to transform how they use their valuable customer data. We are excited to partner with DISH, a pioneer in the TV industry, to let media buyers and sellers demonstrate the efficacy of TV media by hyper-targeting advertisements, and measuring results at a granular, addressable level,” he added.
The partnership between Neustar and DISH comes at a pivotal turning point in the evolution of the television landscape. Advancements in technology have shifted the television viewing experience, spurring marketers to rethink their engagement strategies on this channel. Addressability is increasingly becoming the de facto solution across all channels and although still emerging, television is no exception.
“Brands can now leverage Neustar’s consumer data to expand beyond the small screen to the featured screen in the house – the TV,” said Adam Gaynor, vice president of DISH Media Sales. “Adding Neustar to our stable of partners simplifies the buying and reporting process for brands utilizing Neustar’s data analytics on DISH’s addressable platform.”
Additionally, using Neustar’s authoritative identity methodology, marketers can measure the impact of advertising exposure by tying it to a lift in consumer action. Based on specific campaign KPIs, marketers can confidently link advertising exposure to a lift in sales, website engagement, or lead generation activities. Now more than ever, marketers need this type of measurement approach that bridges the offline and online worlds, and is linked to an authoritative identity.

These audiences are fueled by Neustar’s authoritative identity – reliable, accurate, and continuously updated consumer segmentation information – which supplies advertisers with the necessary data-driven insights needed to deliver personalized marketing with consistency.
