TRA offers a platform that matches 2 million households of TV-tuning data with consumer purchase data, which enables its clients to find the program audience that actually buys the advertised products. In a nut shell, they improve TV advertising effectiveness, which is why TiVo is very interested in them, and plonking down $20 million for them.

 

Once the acquisition is complete, TiVo have said they will create a new unit called 'TiVo Research and Analytics' (TRA). Works out well, don't you think? This new unit should be opened later this month, when the deal is closed.
