Geo-targeted TV ads will add greater direction and specificity to media planning, especially in the Indian market. Our partnership with Amagi will significantly boost our efforts to offer greater ROI to advertisers.”

The addition of Zee Cinema to our bouquet of channels is a step forward in this direction.”

Amagi claims that more than 30 of the country’s top 50 advertisers leverage Amagi’s geo-targeting platform to target their ads to specific audiences. This trend highlights the growing appetite for targeted TV advertising.
