FreeWheel Media, Inc. Key Developments

FreeWheel Announces Launch of a VOD Pilot

FreeWheel announced the launch of a VOD Pilot that enables programmers to seamlessly manage VOD ads alongside IP/Digital ads and set top box TV ads within the same platform and take advantage of unified inventory within the FourFronts Premium Marketplace. The initiative is in collaboration with Canoe; several programmers including ABC and A+E Networks; and Comcast, with additional MVPDs to follow. The pilot is a critical step towards true unification of digital, VOD, and Linear. In addition to managing their own direct sold unified campaigns on digital and Cable VOD ad impressions, pilot participants will have the ability to grant sales rights on unified digital and Cable VOD ad impressions through the FourFronts Premium Marketplace. The FourFronts Premium Marketplace provides publishers with opportunities to generate more revenue by balancing unified video inventory supply with demand in a safe environment. Programmers participating in the VOD Pilot have the option of utilizing the FourFronts Private Marketplace to monetize VOD inventory that is made available by the VOD Pilot. Heller maintains that piloting this on both FreeWheel’s platform and its FourFronts Premium Marketplace brings unified ad operations to life by enabling the management of digital ads and VOD ads on a single platform, and within a single marketplace. Unifying to rebuild scale enables holistic monetization operations at the ad impression level across all screens.
