We aim to be your advertising partner of choice by creating the best customer experience possible. To support this goal, our work is guided by the following three principles.

We Know You – And We Listen

Count on us to be a creative and strategic partner dedicated to delivering your ideal ad solutions. We tailor our collaborative technique to each advertising partner so we can connect your brand to the right audience, in the right way.

We Know Your Audience

We foster meaningful connections with viewers through broad- and targeted-reach solutions. This approach is bolstered by advanced insights that help you identify and speak to the right audiences.

We Know the Business

Use our marketplace expertise to upgrade your ad strategy. We understand how to reach the right viewers with innovative multiscreen advertising, and we put this to work for you. Follow your audiences wherever they watch, and deliver video everywhere.



Our broad capabilities support you at every step of the campaign process. From audience research, through creative stages, to results and optimization, you can be confident your campaign is calibrated to achieve the greatest impact.

Extensive Research

We’ve partnered with more than 30 data providers to create a comprehensive view of the marketplace, with insights like geographic area, gender, age, income level, and propensity to buy. This level of detail helps pinpoint your audience, which can improve campaign results and minimize ad waste.

Precise Targeting

After we’ve studied the data to identify audiences, our ad solutions follow viewers from TV programming across digital platforms including mobile, desktop, and tablet. By targeting audiences instead of screens, you can achieve more effective and efficient reach and engagement.

Quality Content

We deliver your ads only in high-quality, brand-safe content. Viewers see our cable and digital advertising whenever and wherever they’re enjoying their favorite content, across our networks and beyond.

Creative Services

Our dedicated creative team can help you craft tailored messaging and create on-brand video content. This customizable solution is available for budgets and businesses of all sizes, from local shops to national corporations.
