Here's Vin on how it works

For years, many businesses have thought that TV advertising has been out of their reach due to its mass appeal and associated costs. AdSmart is turning that thinking on its head – making TV relevant and affordable for businesses across the UK. The beauty of AdSmart is you don’t have to track your audience by channel, time or programme; it only plays your ad when your selected audience is watching, so you can be sure every penny counts.

  • An advertiser will only be charged if 75% or more of their advert is viewed
  • Local businesses can now have an advert amongst Sky’s world class content and across Sky Sports, Sky Cinema, Sky Atlantic, Sky One and Many more
  • Prices start from as little as £3,000 or 5 pence per view
  • The advert will only be shown on the TV if the target audience is watching
