Frito Lay, the owner of the Doritos brand, chose to not buy commercial time in the 2017 Super Bowl, ending a 10-year run as a sponsor of the event. "But we know we need to be able to handle a multiple of the streaming audience from a year ago...say in the 2x range", Poolman said, adding that it's "not inconceivable" that it could be in the range of 3x or 4x.
According to assistant professor of sociology Kyle Green, the Super Bowl is a weird cultural event.
This year, the Super Bowl is getting back one of its most loyal advertisers and losing another.
That price doesn't include the cost of actually creating the ad, the publicity around the ad, and other aspects necessary to create a successful Super Bowl ad campaign.
Indeed, the rise of social media has coincided with an adapted Super Bowl commercial tradition. Fox is promoting the live stream to boost viewership. "We've been very aggressive in terms of working with those CDN partners", he said.
Ad ranking results from the Super Bowl rating party will be available immediately when the game ends.
It might be the first year that Canadians will be seeing American commercial programming during the Super Bowl LI's simulcast from NRG Stadium in Houston, but many will already be watching the much-hyped ads on YouTube before, during, and after the big game.

"Fortunately, when you look at the arc of TV advertising, the "big picture" of our industry, what we're seeing with Super Bowl ads, while fascinating, is just a blip", said Kowalchek.
And it is putting the game on more of its channels - CTV, CTV Two, TSN and RDS - to increase the chances that viewers hunting around the dial will land on the Canadian broadcast.

He says just like sociologists, advertisers study trends to sell a product- "What they wanna do is say what's the pattern in society what's the trend and how can I take advantage of it".
Fox Sports also has some other data to reference ahead of the game. "But for non-football fans, the Super Bowl is also a must-watch experience, if for nothing else than the ads throughout the game".
The report, from video creation platform Wochit, indicates that nearly 112 million people tuned in the final previous year, but 3.96 million live-streamed the game.
