NEW YORK and RESTON, Va., March 19, 2013

NEW YORK and RESTON, Va., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Crackle and comScore
(NASDAQ : SCOR) today announced a first-of-its-kind all-platform audience
measurement deal for Sony Picture Television's free ad-supported video
streaming service, Crackle. This ground-breaking initiative will leverage
comScore's audience measurement techniques to produce unduplicated audience
size and demographics across the entire Crackle entertainment network, which
includes all screens and platforms – online, mobile/tablet, connected TV and
game consoles. Data will be available during the second quarter and Crackle
will be the first in the industry to use this methodology to provide
advertisers with comScore video audience measurement for all of its devices
and 20+ apps.

comScore's proprietary methods leverage census-level media measurement that
produces audience samples numbering in the millions, far surpassing
traditional TV audience counting methods. In addition, this census-level
reporting – which provides enough common touchpoints between each platform to
determine cross-platform overlap – serves as the basis for comScore's
multi-platform audience de-duplication techniques.

"Before this new capability, there had been no audience measurement of
connected TV and game consoles, so publishers and networks could not provide
an unduplicated audience number," said Eric Berger, GM of Crackle and
executive vice president, digital networks for Sony Pictures Television. "With
the help of comScore and their revolutionary approach, we can now provide
advertisers with measurement that includes the audience size and demographics
across all of Crackle."

"Our development of this multi-platform attribution technique cracked the code
for determining a single unified audience number across platforms, and we
designed it with the knowledge that it could theoretically scale to
accommodate the growing number of media channels today," said Serge Matta,
comScore President of Commercial Solutions. "In working with Crackle to
measure its total audience, we have tested the limits of multi-platform
measurement and proven that scalability can be achieved. This is an important
first step in giving media companies the credit they deserve in delivering
audiences to advertisers across a variety of touchpoints."
