Addressable TV, the sending of TV ads to specific cable or satellite boxes, is developing but its growth is limited by supply.   MSO’s including AT&T DirecTV, Cablevision and others offer only two-minutes per hour. But that is going to change. It will be driven by media agencies who will buy national programming and allocate spots on the impression level, predicts Irwin Gotlieb, Chairman of GroupM the media buying unit of WPP.

We spoke with him last week at an event about the future of addressable TV presented by AT&T AdWorks in association with Beet.TV  Please find more videos here.

Beet Retreat, November 11-13

Gotlieb will keynote our executive retreat on addressable television at the W Fort Lauderdale.   We are pleased to announce the participants here.  The event is presented by Videology with Nielsen, Adobe and AT&T AdWorks.
