Five on Friday: Acquisitions, Ad Sales and Ad Blockers
Featuring CBS All Access, Meredith, SwearBy and The New York Times
Subscription companies are starting 2020 strong with acquisitions, ad sales and inquiries into ad blocking companies. We’ll explore those topics in this week’s edition of Five on Friday: CBS All Access continues to do well with low subscription churn and higher ad sales; travel trends show that subscriptions and memberships are a solid strategy; Meredith will acquire crowdsourced recommendation platform SwearBy; The New York Times reports preliminary results for 2019; and Sen. Ron Wyden wants an investigation into the ad-blocking industry to see if Big Tech is buying them off.
