CROWN MEDIA FAMILY NETWORKS COLLABORATES WITH THE CAMBRIDGE GROUP AND NIELSEN CATALINA SOLUTIONS TO REACH ADVERTISERS' SUPER-CONSUMERS DURING 2014/2015 UPFRONT

Analytic Data Helps Brands Identify Their Most Passionate Consumers and Maximize Media Spends

Crown Media Family Networks, home of Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel, announced today it will be the first cable programmer to leverage The Cambridge Group's innovative super-consumer analysis in the 2014/2015 Upfront season.

This data, compiled in conjunction with Nielsen Catalina Solutions, has demonstrated significant interest from national advertisers and demonstrates that for many brands the top 10% of buyers are driving up to 40% of revenues, particularly in the packaged goods category. In utilizing this unique data, Crown Media will help clients hone in on their most loyal customers and consequently increase the effectiveness and efficiency of their media buys on both networks.

"We are always looking for new ways to raise our value proposition in the marketplace and this data gets to the heart of what matters most to our clients - reaching the right audience and optimizing ROI," said Bill Abbott, president and CEO, Crown Media Family Networks. "The Cambridge Group and Nielsen Catalina Solutions are breaking exciting new ground with this research and we are so pleased to put this information to work for our advertising partners and help them connect directly with that influential subset of consumers who truly drive their bottom line."

"This collaboration enabled us to explore an exciting new angle on super consumers, linking their purchase behavior to their television viewing," adds Chris Fosdick, Principal with The Cambridge Group. "Reaching the most influential consumer with the right message in the right environment has long been the goal for advertisers, but now we have new data tools that enable us to do so with greater precision, a win-win for all stakeholders in the value chain."
