Advertising and other means of monetising the hybrid approach to television

📍 HbbTV Symposium & Awards, Prague
🗓 9th November 2022, 3:20 pm

Advertising is one of the oldest businesses in the world. It provides a lucrative method of monetising broadcast services at low-to-no cost to viewers. Hybrid solutions for content distribution naturally provide content owners with a platform to monetise video across big-screen applications, by leveraging advertising and other means.

In this keynote, Ashley Horne – Simplestream’s Technical Director – provides a thorough overview of the set of HbbTV solutions as part of the company’s suite of products, with a focus on multiple monetisation models. In particular, the conversation focuses on the following topical questions:

  • What can broadcasters and content owners do to improve their profitability in the HbbTV space?
  • Why is the industry drifting back towards linear-like distribution of content with monetisation through ad-insertion?
  • What are the differences between server-side and client-side ad insertion, and how can these models work in the HbbTV space?
  • How can service providers monitor their users’ data to achieve bigger engagement objectives?
  • What other means of monetisation are made possible for HbbTV operators?

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
