Online Viewers Not Hostile to Ads

Jan 28, 2009  •  Post A Comment

ABC has learned that doubling the ad load from four to eight in its online primetime shows doesn’t decrease consumer interest in watching shows online, said Albert Cheng, executive VP of digital media with the Disney-ABC Television Group, during an afternoon panel at NATPE.
During its research, the network also learned that it can run ads for anywhere from one to four brands without impacting brand favorability. “People still find the user experience enjoyable when there are more brands in a single episode, and that doesn’t decrease the ad recall or the viewing experience,” he said.
However, advertisers are wary of too much clutter, said Donna Speciale, president of investment and activation with MediaVest Worldwide, during the same panel.
“You have to be careful because the TV landscape has gotten crazy with commercials, so I’m a little nervous,” she said. “I think people are going online because they can be free to see their content without too many ads. The key is walking that fine line and balance before we push them over the edge of being pissed.”


  1. Online viewers simply hit mute and continue web surfing when the ads run.
    Attention advertisers: No one watches your ads online.

  2. Yeah…right. Viewers love ads about Cisco while they watch a news report about some mother who just stuffed her 2 year old in a micro-wave oven.

  21. Properly, to not repeat the hating on aol, but th is is probably probably the most d isappointing l ist to date. On each sides. How can El Banco Deuno and aol be on the greatest l ist, and then bash artwork directors club? I really did nothave a problem with that redesign, and also the collateral was looking rather very good. You recognize what will need to have already been on the l ist for worst logos? New York Philharmonic logo. My hatred of that logo burns in my chest to th is day. The identify on the designer behind that logo would be the only reason for any of its accomplishment. The perfect l ist the 12 months is really mediocre for me.I like Mary Shu is remark about her decisions for the best l ist a little bit better.

  22. What a great resource!

  23. This is the best blog I’ve ever seen in my life! I really appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day to share your this with everyone.
