WHAT IT IS
ShoppableTV is a new, seamless shopping experience that gives viewers the opportunity to purchase products within the environment of their favorite TV show. This new capability redefines the purchase funnel for NBCUniversal partners, and allows viewers to shop in new, innovative ways.
“With ShoppableTV, NBCUniversal is transcending the legacy business practices of television and driving business outcomes by creating an on-air real-time commerce experience. By pairing brands with our premium content, owning every stage of the purchase funnel and removing the barriers consumers traditionally encounter between seeing a product and making a purchase, we’re giving marketers a direct sales channel to millions of viewers across the country.”
-Josh Feldman, Executive Vice President, Head of Marketing and Advertising Creative, NBCUniversal
ShoppableTV is available across the entire NBCU portfolio for both in-show integrations and through custom content that surrounds contextually relevant programming.
Since launch, we’ve rolled out ShoppableTV across four different properties: The French Open + Lacoste; Walmart + TODAY; Zwift + Tour de France; and Roli + Songland. Across the board, ShoppableTV has let us, and the brands we work with, impact every layer of the funnel from awareness to consideration to purchasing. We’ve seen preliminary results from our initial launch:
- ShoppableTV ads have reached over 15 million people
- We drove fan acquisition at a +9% growth rate on social media
- Our average conversion rate is 27% higher than the industry benchmark for ecommerce conversion
