TVPlayer agrees ad partnership with SpotX

TVPlayerUK-based TV streaming service, TVPlayer, has partnered with video ad serving platform SpotX, allowing advertisers to target viewers based on their viewing habits.

SpotX will provide ad-serving infrastructure for all TVPlayer’s inventory – across connected TV, desktop and smartphones – and will offer data-driven ad buying options.

Advertisers will be able to target customers based on viewing habits and TVPlayer’s own demographic data and will be able to place pre-roll and in-stream advertising on TVPlayer.

“Consumer viewing habits have significantly changed over the past few years,” said Rob Hodgkinson, chief operating officer of TVPlayer. “We provide a one-stop-shop for the best of British TV, supported with advertising delivered through SpotX’s infrastructure.”

“We selected SpotX because their modern ad-server combines programmatic infrastructure alongside traditional ad serving functionality, enabling TVPlayer to compete multiple demand sources simultaneously in a unified auction.”

Leon Siotis, managing director, UK and Southern Europe at SpotX, said: “TVPlayer has a premium audience of connected TV viewers, including a high proportion of Millennials which can be hard to reach with traditional media.

“Now advertisers can advertise to them in a ‘lean back’ TV environment, during premium programmes, using programmatic technology and leveraging device-level real-time data.”
