Kantar Social TV Ratings: Sports
Our latest features enable rights holders, sporting organisations, brands and media owners to maximise social TV engagement between fans and sport
broadcasts across the world.
The way consumers interact with sport broadcasts is evolving. Social media is playing a growing role in how fans celebrate, commiserate, debate and follow games, tournaments and matches.
Twitter attracts a phenomenal number of sports fans. For example, during the tournament period more than 109 million Tweets were sent related to #EURO20161. The final attracted 14.2 million Tweets alone, and not just originating from competing nations Portugal and France. This heatmap shows how global the conversation truly was.
Kantar Social TV Ratings: Sports allows sporting organisations and brands to unlock the value of this engagement by providing comprehensive measurement of activity on social media about sport broadcasts around the world. Our global partnership with Twitter enables us to measure accurate impressions data, geo-filtered Tweets and deeper insights for the top 30 countries by Twitter volume.
As well as totals for Tweets, unique authors and impressions, metrics are provided around demographics, the most retweets and impressions, most used hashtags and mentioned accounts, top contributors, brand affinity and sentiment analysis for some languages. This data is available to analyse through our intuitive web based platform, Instar Social.
Rights holders, federations, clubs and organisations can:
- Understand audience reactions and engagement with match broadcasts around the world
- Benchmark against other sporting competitions and clubs
- Gain a new layer of audience data that can be used to prove value to sponsors and advertisers
- Allow sponsors and advertisers greater targeting capability to reach fans
