  • What is OTT/CTV/CD?

    Over-the-top (OTT) refers to the delivery of video streaming over the internet, as opposed to traditional TV.

    Connected TV (CTV) is an internet-connected television, sometimes also called a smart TV, that supports the streaming of video content. For TVs that don’t have built-in streaming capabilities, they can become a connected TV via a connected device like a streaming stick or gaming console.

    Connected devices (CD) is a broader term for external hardware devices that provide the means for consumers to stream OTT content.

    Branch supports measurement for all of the popular OTT services on any device, including CTV and CDs.

  • What is the difference between AVOD, SVOD, and TVOD?

    Advertising video on demand (AVOD) enables users to watch content for free or reduced cost with ads.

    Subscription video on demand (SVOD) is a type of streaming service where consumers pay a flat fee on a recurring basis to consume unlimited content.

    Transactional video on demand (TVOD) allows viewers to purchase content on a pay-per-view basis.

    For AVOD, SVOD, and TVOD, Branch enables attribution and tracking to measure post-install subscriptions, pay-per-view purchases, and ad impressions — providing insight into the ad network’s name, campaign, creative, placement, ad spend, and much more.

  • What is an MVPD or a vMVPD?

    A multichannel video programming distributor (MVPD) is a service that provides more than one channel, where users typically pay a subscription to access their range of content. A virtual multichannel video programming distributor (vMVPD) is the virtual, OTT version of this.

  • What is the difference between linear television and PPV?

    You can think of linear as traditional television, where the service is programmed and available to viewers only as scheduled. Pay-per-view (PPV) enables watching content on demand on a pay-to-watch basis via private telecast.

  • What is an STB?

    A set-top box (STB), also known as a cable box, is a hardware device that helps connect viewers to content.
