How CTV Ads Work
CTV Ads work the same as traditional TV advertisements in that they are embedded into the feed at the pre-assigned ad breaks. It also noted that CTV ads replace the traditional linear TV ads on a channel that is meant for broadcast on terrestrial and satellite broadcasts. AVO CTV ads are fantastic for brands and advertisers who want to increase brand awareness and engage or re-engage their audience.
Unlike traditional TV ads, CTV ads on AVO TV give data back to the advertiser, thus ensuring exact campaign targets and budgets are met.
These ads are convergence of digital technology with traditional TV. CTV ads make the most of the growing CTV advertising with AVO TV means that you can now target, measure, and retarget TV-viewing
households and audiences placed as pre-roll and mid-roll and can be displayed in linear TV ad breaks. CT ads display across all platforms on which the AVO TV app is available.
