According to the company, it is now available on the TV channels Markiza, Doma and Dajto. R2B2 has been offering content targeting in the Czech Republic for nearly a year.
Commenting on the new launch, David Kratochvil, key client manager at R2B2, said: “We’re glad that our content targeting is now available in Slovakia. With this type of automated targeting, we are simplifying the process of buying ads on HbbTV by eliminating the need to manually search for corresponding TV programmes and set up several advertising plans”.
Separately, R2B2 has introduced a new type of targeting for programmatic ads on HbbTV. Available in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia, it allows advertisers to target viewers by TV brand and model. According to Kratochvil, “Advertisers have immediate access to several approaches to viewer targeting. They can choose one or more brands. They can also, for example, target ad messages to OLED TVs or select older models by model number”.
Skylink has become the first company to try this type of targeting, using it on its campaign for the Skylink Live TV app.
Tomas Jelinek, online marketing manager at Skylink, said: “”Right now, our app is only accessible via Samsung smart TVs produced as of 2015. In cooperation with R2B2, using the new method of targeting, we were able to select the TV brand and year of production. So, we were able to reach the segment of viewers with TVs connected to the Internet that meet these conditions and could offer them the opportunity to download a free trial app”.
Prague-based R2B2 runs a digital ad network that reaches more than 10 million screens – TVs, computers, and mobile devices.
