  • The pilot program featured ad partners across CPG, Gaming, Travel and Retail. In just one week, advertisers saw up to 87% of Moonbug’s impressions to be incremental to their linear buy, indicating that family audiences have shifted to streaming platforms.
  • iSpot was selected for their data compliant approach within a highly regulated industry.

LOS ANGELES, CA — Moonbug Entertainment, part of Candle Media, has today announced its partnership with TV measurement company Moonbug is behind some of the most loved family entertainment brands in the world, including CoComelon and Blippi.

Specifically, Moonbug will leverage iSpot’s cross-platform TV measurement solution to responsibly measure viewership across their owned and operated CTV apps.

Doing so will provide Moonbug an ability to deliver data-driven insights accurately and transparently without compromising data security for minors. This includes quantifying ad impressions delivered to incremental households that traditional linear TV misses. According to a study conducted by Attest Market Research, 71% of Moonbug households are cord-cutters or cord-nevers.

Across a range of advertisers, Moonbug saw phenomenal results with up to 87% of impressions being incremental to linear TV advertising.

Through this partnership, Moonbug and iSpot have validated in a privacy compliant way that these families have shifted their consumption habits and dramatically migrated away from linear. This poses an untapped opportunity for brands to effectively reach this valuable audience in streaming content for families.

“We are thrilled to partner with iSpot, an industry leading measurement solution who understands our need to protect the privacy of minors, while being able to validate the scale and value of our CTV audience.” said Emma Witkowski, Head of Brand Strategy & Client Success, Moonbug. “Being able to demonstrate the value for advertisers who would like to reach this new audience segment of digital streaming families”

“We’re excited to work with Moonbug to help them measure and showcase to the market their reach beyond linear TV,” said Stuart Schwartzapfel EVP, Media Partnerships, iSpot. “iSpot’s unique measuring methods will help brands understand the real value of Moonbug’s family entertainment channels in order to determine the best strategies to reach the growing number of households who enjoy these channels.”
