“Providing free accessibility to the latest technology in one package demonstrates our commitment to help fuel retailers differentiate their business, drive brand loyalty, and prepare for the EMV transition,” states Cameron Nokes, Product Manager, inOvationTV media program, Wayne Fueling Systems. “GSTV’s premium programming and site-specific retailer promotional ads have led to significant increases in return visits, as well as customer conversion from the forecourt to the C-store. This comprehensive solution demonstrates a proven lower total-cost-of-ownership for the fuel retailer.”

GSTV continues to deliver an industry-leading experience at the pump through exclusive long-term partnerships with premium content partners such as ESPN, CNN, Bloomberg Television and AccuWeather. “The opportunity to connect consumers with our messages and our content while they are waiting and have time to absorb our message is an important strategy for Turner, and our partnership with GSTV allows us to do just that,” stated Alison Hashimoto, Vice President of Programming and Production, Turner Private Networks.

According to a June 2014 Wayne Fueling Systems and GSTV Lieberman Forecourt Media Study, inOvationTV customers are two times more likely to visit the C-store during their visit than at stations without media. Ninety-one percent agree inOvationTV makes pumping gas a better experience.
