Start with a company that has a solid understanding of where the CTV | OTT | Streaming space is right now. Beware there are many people that work at good companies that only have a superficial understanding and lots of pressure to sell.

Find a company that is 100% transparent and one that will focus more on your goals rather than confusing you with acronyms and competitions. An easy test to see if the company is transparent, ask them to open the campaign in front of you for a quick view of the custom audience profile, GEO's, CPM' Reach & frequency.
