Best Practices

Connected TV offers a platform to showcase your brand via nonskippable, high quality formats, on premium networks.

Create an instant connection with your audience by telling a story about your product(s) and encourage users to your site

Add a persistent URL or brand name to guide users to visit your site on their mobile or desktop devices while they watch TV.

Include a strong end card with a clear call-to-action once the video concludes.

Check to see if your video assets are high enough quality for the TV screen.
