About CTV attribution
CTV, gaming, and OTT devices (also referred to as just CTV devices) allow devices to connect to the internet and engage with Smart TV, CTV, and gaming apps and content. These devices deliver audio and visual content via streaming over the internet, bypassing cable, broadcast, and satellite platforms.
App owners integrate with AppsFlyer to receive attribution data and performance measurements about sources (non-organic or organic) and paid campaigns driving CTV and gaming platform app installs and post-install events. Marketers use these insights to measure and optimize marketing activities. Learn more about AppsFlyer attribution
