How Foxtel Group is outspending its streaming rivals
With three days until the end of the quarter, we look today at how the streaming services have been investing in TV advertising since the start of the year.
The data comes from monitoring service Canda Media Intelligence.
Canda tracks advertising activity across the country. It estimates that the streamers have spent nearly $8m on promoting their offerings to TV viewers in the quarter just ending.
January was busiest, with about $2.9m of activity. February saw roughly $2.7m of spend. And March has so far seen $2.2m.
Putting the spend on a pie chart helps demonstrate that Foxtel Group is significantly outspending its rivals.
