Revolutionizing Screen Time: GOOGLE TV's Advertising Game Changer

As we are living in a time where people's lives has been taken over by digital devices, the launch of the Google TV network is changing the way advertisers reach their audience.Google's innovative ads technology gives marketers a great tool to reach more public. Let's see how Google will change the way we watch TV and how those ads will be served.

GOOGLE's Strategic Move into Streamed Advertising

Having been the pioneer of web innovation, Google is creating its own internet-connected TV platform, Google TV. It has more than 20 million actives devices per month running its Google TV and Android TV operating systems. But it is with the possibility of serving targeted advertising across more than 125 linear channels, and in particular the FAST channels, where and SideChef are just early adopters, that a new era of streamed content consumption is being heralded.

Understanding the FAST Phenomenon

The next frontier for Google is free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channels, bending viewers toward uninterrupted streaming by providing online video through in-stream ad spots that users aren’t even able to skip.

The Synergy between GOOGLE TV and YouTube

Thanks to YouTube — which gets more than 150 million viewers monthly in the living room — Google can breach virtually all boundaries, and create a network that advertisers can reach vast numbers of people from all sorts of demographics and interests.

How Advertisers Can Leverage GOOGLE TV

Thanks to the Google TV network, advertisers can now take their target ads to another level. Through Google Ads and Google Display and Video 360, marketing campaigns can leave the traditional shine to create a more personalized sensory experience to the viewers. This section delves into the benefits and how advertisers can leverage from Google TV.

Unskippable In-Stream Ad Spots: A Game Changer

The flagship feature of the Google TV network is the use of in-stream ads that consumers can’t skip. That means ads get maximum exposure, maximising the chance that viewers will notice them and be converted.

Expanding Campaigns with GOOGLE's Ecosystem

It also adds live reporting with Google Ads, as well as the potential to tally up campaigns on Google Display & Video 360. This allows advertisers to centralise their campaigns across the Google ecosystem, and to have the most effective ad campaigns.

Embracing the Future: The Impact on Viewers and Advertisers

The Google TV grid signals a shift in how content and advertising cohabit the screen, with viewers standing to enjoy a fuller, more immersive experience of content that appeals to their tastes, and advertisers furnished with ever more powerful tools to reach and captivate the audience of their dreams.

For Viewers: Enhanced and Personalized Viewing Experience

Google TV changes the way that one watches television — it shows content that actually speaks to the viewer. Yes, that’s personalisation for you! It enriches the viewing experience by offering personalised media content. And it enriches our lives by fostering our own identification with the content producer!

For Advertisers: Precision Targeting and Greater Reach

Google’s sheer amount of data enables advertisers to target with unprecedented precision. One can advertise on YouTube to expand one’s overall reach into the living room, or use the demographics across Google TV as a way of reaching a particular target.

Riding the Wave of Change: What’s Next for GOOGLE TV?

It’s fair to say that, as Google continues to innovate, Google TV has a bright future. The increasing use of analytics, AI and machine learning in the digital realm opens up interesting possibilities for how ads are delivered, consumed and personalised further through the coming years. For example, televised ads may become more interactive, blending into in-home devices, and feeds may become more personalised based on consumers’ behaviour and devices.

Innovating Beyond Boundaries: GOOGLE's Roadmap

So it’s possible that content and advertisements are only the starting point of what’s on the roadmap for Google TV – the company is already muscling into the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning with ‘smart’ devices, and if the evolution of Google TV does become an actual business, it could fundamentally change the way we get our home entertainment, making it more immediate, even ‘smarter’, more integrated into our lives and more part of a true virtual world.

Understanding GOOGLE's Pioneering Spirit

At the heart of it, Google has always been about innovation: big ideas, fine tuning and finding new ways to streamline the digital experience. From search engines to streaming, the company has consistently altered the landscape of what can be done in the digital world. Through the Google TV network, a groundbreaking new advertising landscape promises to bring targetted, unskaggable ads to an ever-expanding suite of channels and, more importantly, offer viewers an experience that truly enhances the way they digest the content. For advertisers, that means better value for money in their campaigns. For consumers, it means a world of entertainment tailored to their needs.
