Google reignites TV ad efforts with access to local & national spots via DoubleClick
Advertisers can buy addressable & linear TV spots programmatically via DBM.
To allow advertisers to buy and compare video ad performance across linear TV and digital, Google is bringing programmatic access to linear TV inventory to DoubleClick Bid Manager (DBM).
The new offering, announced at the National Association for Broadcasters (NAB) conference in Las Vegas on Monday, taps inventory sources from WideOrbit, clypd and Google Fiber, the company’s own high-speed internet service. Google Fiber offers access to addressable local inventory on cable networks; WideOrbit from local affiliates; and clypd from national broadcast and cable networks.
“By adding traditional TV buying into DoubleClick Bid Manager, we are taking the first step towards allowing advertisers and agencies to manage their video campaigns across digital and linear TV, in a more efficient and effective way,” wrote Rany Ng, director, project management at Google in the blog post announcing the test.
