Tata Play, a direct-to-home (DTH) provider, has announced that addressable television ads will be available soon. With the help of addressable TV advertising technology, advertisers may segment TV audiences into distinct groups and show different advertisements to distinct households—even when they are watching the same show. The action is a direct result of newly acquired additional satellite capacity and is the first of its kind in India. Addressable ads have essentially made it possible to achieve media planning on television that is similar to digital. Brands can use audience profiles and geographical filters to more precisely target their linear TV advertisements.
Addressable Ads and Linear TV
With this, media planning on television can now be accomplished digitally. Addressable TV advertisements combine digital media and linear TV. For top-of-funnel delivery, it is necessary. Advertisers can benefit from increased ROI with Tata Play’s Addressable Ads thanks to features like targeting and buying impressions. Now that they have the means, broadcast partners can provide brands with a more relevant, lucrative, and efficient inventory.
Tata Play Collaboration with Invidi and TAM
With this ground-breaking innovation, marketers can now reach their intended audience with total measurability—a first for disconnected boxes. Television advertising will be more interesting and successful thanks to segmentation, which will be based on audience profiles and different geographical cuts. For this project, Tata Play has teamed up with TAM and Invidi. Invidi is the addressable ad technology and campaign management partner while TAM will enable audience measurement and monitoring.
Here’s what they said
Harit Nagpal, chief executive and managing director, of Tata Play, said,
While television delivers the highest advertising reach for brands, it doesn’t offer sharper targeting. With our targeted ad delivery, we can now split a TV spot into multiple beams, each carrying messages to distinctive audience cohorts, as required by the advertisers.
