Balancing opportunities in a time of uncertainty

During these extremely difficult times, it seems one impact of self isolation, unsurprisingly, is increased TV viewing (according to Kantar Media). And not just across the traditional TV platforms - more and more viewing is across connected devices, but with the TV still dominant, giving channels and content owners the opportunity to monetise their content through the growing dynamic ad insertion market. Connected Freeview Although many IPTV delivered channels have benefited from this market, until recently accessing this lucrative sector for Connected Freeview channels has not been possible. However, Canis Television and Media have now become the preferred UK Sales and Media partner for accessing both Connected Freeview and the dynamic ad insertion market. Channel owners, as well as content owners, can now have their own advertising-supported streaming or VOD channels launched through Canis Television and Media. We can offer not only access to the capacity, at extremely competitive rates and a fraction of the cost of traditional Freeview, but also full playout and management services, combined with unique dynamic ad insertion compatible with the Freeview platform, and access to approximately 12.7 million Connected Freeview UK homes. A nationwide, audio only service will also be launched, to help non-RAJAR measured radio stations access the digital advertising market and gain national coverage at the most competitive prices in the market. A full media pack explaining how to access these platforms and benefit from increased revenues is available on request. Please email our Commercial Director, mark.dodd@canismedia.com or find out more on our website. Channelbox

We believe there are great opportunities in Connected Freeview and have recently launched TV Warehouse, one of our own channels, onto the Channelbox platform, an IP service aggregating a range of TV channels, available on Freeview 271.

We will also shortly be launching two additional channels of our own - the Active Sports Network, a sports and lifestyle channel covering a range of sports to inspire viewers to take up a sport and activate a healthier lifestyle, and Country Music Entertainment; a jukebox-style country music channel. In addition, over the next few weeks, we are launching a number of our clients’ channels on to this platform. If you are interested in finding out more about how you can do this, or interested in any of our other Broadcast, Digital or Social Media services, then please email mark.dodd@canismedia.com or call 020 3740 3242.
