I work with you to make your advertising dreams into revenue reality!
If you answer yes to ANY of the points below then AdSmart could be right for you…
The beauty of AdSmart is you don’t have to track your audience by channel, time or programme; it only plays your ad when your selected audience is watching, so you can be sure every penny counts.
You will only be charged if 75% or more of your advert is viewed.
AdSmart allows you to pick and choose from a range of household attributes. There are thousands of ways you can mix the attributes to make sure your ideal customers get to see your TV ad. See a selection below:
Many businesses currently using AdSmart choose to utilise one of our many location based targeting options.

Some answers to the most frequently asked questions about AdSmart.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for please drop me a line.
Customers won’t be able to tell any difference except the ads they see may be more relevant.
You will only be able to see your advert if your household falls into the segment you have selected for the campaign.
Sky will provide you with comprehensive campaign level reporting of your impressions.
AdSmart uses an algorithm that helps to make sure that ads play out when a chosen audience is most likely to be watching. It takes into account the projected linear audience which helps to enhance targeting within the household.
AdSmart also takes into account normal clash rules.
Your ad should be standard lengths – 10, 20,30, 40 or 60 seconds.
If a customer is watching recorded content and views the ads at normal viewing speed then a AdSmart can play out.
The AdSmart ad chosen will be from the selection of ads stored on the box at the time of viewing so old recordings will have current ads.
AdSmart campaigns can have independent start and end dates from linear campaigns.
Yes! We offer advertisers the opportunity to use their own customer data to create custom segments, particularly if they hold data at the household level.
AdSmart is an audience based platform thus the ad will only be served when your audience is watching, no matter which channel or programme they are viewing. This means that you don’t need to select a channel or programme.
To ensure the data is robust we have engaged RSMB to perform an independent audit of the measurement methodology. RSMB are the market leaders in television audience measurement design, operation and quality control. They are responsible for auditing BARB, the organisation that measures linear TV viewing in the UK. Find out more about RSMB here.
AdSmart is traded on a cost per impression (CPM) basis.
Once an ad has been seen for 75% or more, at normal viewing speed, this is an impression.
We only charge advertisers when 75% or more of the ad is shown at normal viewing speed.
The cost of a AdSmart campaign depends on the attribute chosen. The minimum spend for a campaign is £3000.
You are not alone, AdSmart now allows advertisers of all shapes and sizes to access the power of TV, so it is no wonder that most of our customers are new to TV.
