From September 21st - 22nd, our team will be in Cologne, Germany attending DMEXCO 2022, Europe’s leading digital marketing and tech event. While there are dozens of topics on the docket this year, we are particularly excited to discuss the rise of digital streaming, smart TVs, and connected TV (CTV) advertising.
Indeed, CTV app stores like the Roku Channel Store, Apple TV tvOS App Store, and Amazon Fire TV grew their app catalogs by an average of 30% between 2021 and 2022, with no signs of slowing down. This, coupled with rising usership, means CTV advertising will likely play an increasingly important role in the digital marketing space in the years to come.
So, with this in mind, we wanted to briefly go over the following (click the links below to jump to the relevant sections):

What Are Connected TV (CTV) Apps?
First, a connected TV (CTV) is any television capable of streaming video, or facilitating access to other digital content, over the Internet. TVs can be ‘connected’ either via built-in streaming and media platforms, like Roku TV, or external streaming devices, like the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
Typically, CTVs enable access to content via apps like Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. These apps are made available on CTV app stores like the Roku Channel Store and Amazon Fire TV.
Our CTV App Intelligence
At 42matters, we offer intelligence on millions of CTV apps from the most popular CTV app and channel stores. These include…
- Roku Channel Store
- Apple TV tvOS App Store
- Amazon Fire TV
- Google TV
- Samsung Smart TV Apps

You can leverage our CTV app intelligence in a variety of ways.
