It is a great pleasure to announce that Orange and FranceTV Publicité have signed an unprecedented agreement on addressable TV advertising. The partnership, paves the way for a new advertising experience for advertisers and viewers alike.
Through this agreement, Orange will share its technological expertise, through its 7 million TV set-top boxes, with FranceTV Publicité. This will enable Orange TV subscriber households to be provided with tailored advertising, in strict compliance with personal data regulations.
Advertisers will be able to offer relevant and personalized ads on Orange’s channels, but must obtain Orange TV subscribers’ consent. This is a major change in the way advertising is delivered. The aim is to offer subscribers more meaningful and service-rich advertising in line with their expectations, without increasing advertising pressure on viewers.
This agreement prefigures the forthcoming adoption of the repeal of the advertising decree of 27 March 1992, which should authorize addressable TV advertising in France. The first operations will be able to start gradually, following the publication of the decree.
