Beyond curiosity, viewing data reveals what sort of content consumers are interested in — information that could be used to power native advertising efforts.

It also would help put a lid on third parties who use all sorts of methods to estimate audience totals for shows on Netflix, Hulu and others. – Allen Weiner, Videoink News
