Auto-Play Hero Unit Helps Drive Efficient Cost-Per Subscriber Acquisition

One of the most powerful functions of the VIZIO Home Screen is its ability to connect viewers with the content they want to watch. After all, watching TV is usually the main motivation for powering up their VIZIO device in the first place.


That’s why we’ve made Auto-Play such a big priority. With Auto-Play units, media companies can promote their movie, show, or entire streaming service within the Hero banner on the VIZIO Home Screen that automatically plays a short video without taking over the entire screen viewing experience.


This allows advertisers to grab the interest of viewers beyond the walls of their owned app, and leverage the full reach of the VIZIO Home Screen.


Recently, a vMVPD service provider that has long worked with VIZIO to promote its streaming service leveraged this Auto-Play functionality to help drive new paid subscribers in a cost-effective way. It ran the Auto-Play unit alongside additional static units as well, all on the Home Screen.


But among all the Home Screen options it chose, the Auto-Play unit performed best. In just one week after optimizing its promotional spending to emphasize the Auto-Play unit, the company’s subscriber acquisition cost — as measured by the number of exposed viewers clicking through to the app with a qualified session duration minimum— fell 13%.


Contributing to this result was VIZIO’s services team, which worked directly with the company to create the most impactful Home Screen experience, combining the Auto-Play and static promotional units to great effect.
