Track campaigns on Roku Endemic Media

With Adjust's Roku Endemic Media integration, you can track campaigns you run on Roku inventory to measure the number of app installs on connected TV devices. This lets you see engagement data from native media environments, such as on the screensaver, as well as inside channels.

Here, you can find information about how to connect Adjust to Roku Endemic Media in the Dashboard, export your data, and more. Once your setup in Adjust is complete, you can start the S2S integration.

Tip:
Not looking to promote your CTV app on Roku inventory? Adjust integrates with different Roku services to measure different types of campaign.

With Roku OneView you can promote mobile apps on connected TV:
  • Set up cross-device tracking on OneView
  • Manage what data Adjust shares with OneView in callbacks
  • Before you begin

    Integration details

    Adjust's S2S integration with Roku cannot be used in conjunction with the Adjust SDK.

    Roku is a self-attributing network. This means that Adjust sends Roku data for all of your app's installs and Roku self-attributes using their own engagement data. Roku attributes using a 14-day lookback window for all endemic media exposures, including both clicks and impressions.

    Roku has their own device identifier called RIDA. Users on Roku devices can reset it at any time or disable it to avoid targeted advertising. If Roku cannot track the RIDA of a Roku device, they can still make an attribution claim using probabilistic matching.
