DISH Moves to Automated TV Ad Sales

What: DISH Media Sales initiates industry’s first programmatic impression-by-impression linear TV marketplace that allows targeted, addressable inventory to be purchased utilizing real-time bidding technology.
Why it matters: DISH’s proprietary supply-side platform seamlessly integrates linear TV ad inventory into digital advertising ecosystem.

descarga (3) DISH Media Sales turned on the pay-TV industry’s first impression-by-impression programmatic marketplace for linear television. DISH Media Sales’ proprietary supply-side platform is designed to seamlessly integrate with the existing digital ecosystem, allowing for 360-degree consumer reach across viewing experiences. The marketplace allows advertisers to purchase targeted, linear television ads, impression by impression, using real-time bidding technology.
DISH Media Sales partnered with digital ad technology IPONWEB to build the online marketplace. DISH initiated beta testing with programmatic marketplace leaders DataXu, Rocket Fuel and TubeMogul, and will introduce the platform to the digital industry upon completion of successful testing with these partners.
DISH’s programmatic TV product offers advertisers the targeting effectiveness and scale of DISH’s addressable advertising technology, full-screen ad viewability and accurate, impression-based viewership information from audience measurement company Rentrak. Targeting criteria includes 80 segments per impression based on household demographics and viewing behaviors.

For a consumer, the lines between smartphones, computers and TVs are blurring.

Advertisers get Control of Targeting, Frequency, Trafficking and Buying

The marketplace allows demand side advertisers per-impression control of targeting, frequency, trafficking, and buying, enhanced by aggregated set-top-box reporting. Ads are delivered to DVR set-top-boxes within the matched households and programmed to dynamically play during commercial breaks as the consumer views live and DVR content. DISH has an addressable audience of more than 8 million households nationwide.

“For a consumer, the lines between smartphones, computers and TVs are blurring,” said Adam Gaynor, vice president of DISH Media Sales. “DISH’s platform unites TV and digital buying, creating an easy avenue for brands to target their message comprehensively and efficiently across the entire consumer experience.”
