Brand Alignment with PBS Content Scores with Audiences

Quality content attracts quality audiences. Learn how brand alignment with NOVA’s award-winning, respected content can win brands the trust – and business – of NOVA’s affluent, influential audience.

In today’s competitive and saturated advertising landscape, brands seek to align themselves with quality content for brand safety, credibility, and engagement. PBS programs, like NOVA, offer media buyers and marketers an excellent opportunity to achieve this through national corporate sponsorship packages. Brand alignment with NOVA’s award-winning, respected content can win brands the trust – and business – of NOVA’s affluent, influential audience.

NOVA: A Prime Opportunity for Media Buyers and Brand Alignment

As America’s most popular primetime science series, reaching more than 55 million viewers every year, NOVA consistently produces original documentaries on topics ranging from ancient Earth to space and flight. NOVA is the gold standard for scientific journalism, recognized by the industry’s most prestigious awards, including the Emmy for Outstanding Science & Technology Programming. This focus on original content sets NOVA apart from commercial networks that rely heavily on repeats and reality TV programs that don’t delve deeply into the scientific or technology concepts that NOVA’s educated, influential viewers are interested in. This distinction allows PBS to offer brands advertising opportunities that reach a discerning audience who appreciates well-researched, informative content. Furthermore, advertising on PBS means that brands benefit from our Halo Effect (only two :60 ad pods per program are allowed, and competing brands never share the same pod), leading to an increase in brand trust, safety, and recall.

Audience Targeting: Quality Content Attracts Quality Audiences

High-quality content is a magnet for quality audiences. NOVA’s audience demographic is characterized by educated, affluent, and tech-savvy individuals who have a keen interest in science and technology. These viewers are:

  • 44% more likely to have earned a doctorate degree*
  • 21% more likely to be super-influential in new technology*
