Cable TV

The Beta Cable Network Studies are the gold standard of critical information for cable networks, MVPD’s and advertisers. Six distinct syndicated studies provide network measurements that go beyond Nielsen ratings. They are exactly the information you need when you are in negotiations on the importance of a cable network, pitching your network to a MVPD or a vMVPD, determining the value a particular network will bring to your expanded basic/digital basic package or a “skinny” bundle, trying to increase local ad sales for cable networks or weighing a sponsorship decision. For cable networks, they are indispensable tools for affiliate relations, affiliate sales, public relations and ad sales.

As part of our ongoing effort to provide information that is as complete and up-to-date as possible, we are beginning to incorporate data that reflects viewers who watch on tablets/smartphones and on streaming networks, rather than traditional TV. Currently, the helpfulness of network groups during these times of the coronavirus pandemic is being measured among multichannel subscribers, ad executives and cable operators.  We are also developing new approaches that will monitor buzz generated by viewers on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. We can also conduct focus groups and custom studies to meet your specific needs.
