SpotX will become Samba TV’s primary CTV ad server, enabling brands and advertisers to buy across its CTV inventory programmatically and traditionally. Through the partnership, Samba’s proprietary TV viewership data will be available via SpotX’s ad serving platform, allowing publishers and advertisers to activate custom TV audience segments, combine TV and digital datasets and extend TV campaigns to all screens. At launch, more than 50 publishers will offer this enriched data set with that number expected to grow significantly over the next six months.

That scale is complemented with precision so that marketers can narrow their targeting to specific audiences with confirmed purchase data in order to drive their real-time bidding.
