Therefore, content service providers keep looking for innovative services in order to remain engaging and relevant in order to ensure their customers feel that the offering was designed especially for them.

Measuring Viewer Engagement in a Social World - Part One | Viaccess-Orca Blog

Wed, Sep 3, 2014 | by Efrat Fenigson


One of the most pressing problems rapidly emerging in the new TV landscape is the one of who is watching.
