ITV has picked 4th Screen Advertising to deliver creative mobile ad campaigns across its entire range of news, sport and entertainment apps and mobile sites.
4th Screen will now work alongside ITV’s media sales team to offer advertisers a range of banners, creative executions and rich media ad formats.
The ads will be integrated across ITV’s mobile inventory including apps and mobile sites for news, sport and entertainment shows such as Britain’s Got Talent, X Factor and I’m A Celebrity.
