What are FAST Channels?
FAST is an acronym that stands for "Free Ad-supported Streaming TV" services; so we are talking about linear television channels offered to viewers not through terrestrial broadcasting, cable, or satellite, but via internet connection on CTVs (connected televisions), desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets and, potentially, every connected device.
The Main Benefits for Content Providers
Lightweight Infrastructure and Low Cost of Implementation
The required technological infrastructure for FAST is easy to set up and implement if compared to other types of television, especially when you choose the right partners with the appropriate expertise.
Advanced Insights and Audience Analytics
Data runs over the internet, so insights are more precise and detailed than ever, with audience demographics, contextual info, device types, etc.
This will provide you with important and valuable data to enhance your content offering.
Higher Ad Revenue
Knowing your audience in-depth will create the best environment for advertisers whose products and services can find the perfect target on FAST channels. This will open up enhanced revenue potential for your TV content business.
