*Using data from a panel of 11 million smart TVs and devices, iSpot measures the average percentage of an ad that is played, a metric called the iSpot Attention Score, and the propensity of consumers to interrupt “ad play” vs. the average, called the iSpot Attention Index (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
