What are Streaming TV ads? What are online video ads?

Streaming TV ads are ads that cannot be skipped and appear either before, during or after streaming content.

Online video ads appear in both in-stream and out-stream formats, across browser and app, on devices such as desktop, mobile and tablet. Online video formats include in-feed video, in-article/in-read video, video in-banner and interstitial video.

Where will my Streaming TV ads appear?


Your content will appear either before or in the middle of Amazon streaming content like Freevee, Amazon Publisher Services broadcaster and network apps, live sports, Twitch and the News app on Fire TV.

What are the benefits of Streaming TV ads?

Viewers today are harder to engage through traditional TV. When you use Amazon’s Streaming TV ads, you’re meeting the audience where they’re spending most of their time — streaming their favourite movies, shows, sports matches and news programs.

How are my ad campaign results measured?

Our measurement tools give you more ways to understand the impact of your campaigns. With our first-party reporting metrics, advertisers can dive deep into insights like impressions, unique reach, video completion rate, detail page views, branded searches and new-to-brand. We also work with 20+ Amazon-supported third-party measurement providers to measure the performance of Streaming TV ads off and on Amazon.

How much do streaming TV ads cost?

Self-service Amazon DSP users can buy and manage their own video campaigns, while those seeking a managed-service option can work with our ad consultants. The managed-service option typically requires a minimum spend of USD $50,000. Contact an account executive for more information.
