How Video and Connected TV (CTV) Ads Work on Microsoft
The power of this feature lies in its ability to leverage audience intelligence to target high-value customers. Microsoft Advertising goes beyond search intent, utilising authorised first-party data from various sources.

This approach is tailored to enhance targeted ads, helping advertisers connect with their ideal audiences.

Currently, they are served across Microsoft’s sites, partner publishers, and on connected TV platforms in the United States. Platforms like Microsoft Start, MSN, CNN, Hulu, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, People, and more are all part of the distribution network. Furthermore, Microsoft Advertising is actively expanding its publisher network, with plans to roll out this feature to markets beyond the United States. This means even more opportunities to reach your target audience through Video and CTV ads.
