Linear TV is still the best way for brands to reach the widest audiences, and we are able to offer many different solutions for clients: creative-led, data-driven linear, addressable.

John Roos
EVP of Corporate Communications and Research

In addition, linear TV provides niche entertainment and information that is attractive to advertisers.
