NEW YORK, NY — May 2, 2022 — Today, NBCUniversal held its first Peacock Newfronts presentation at the Highline Stages. During the presentation, the company unveiled two new ad innovations for the AVOD streaming service, extending the company’s One22 commitment to enhance the ad experience for consumers and marketers.
The Peacock Frame Ad keeps users connected to the content they love while a brand frames the experience with contextually relevant messaging and offers for purchase. Brands can leverage our robust first-party data through NBCUnified and full suite of commerce capabilities including our new partnership with Gopuff, the instant commerce platform that delivers everyday essentials to a customer’s doorstep within minutes.
The streaming service is also exploring the Peacock In-Scene Ad, which would integrate a brand’s product and/or messaging during post-production. This prototype aims to find the right moments within top shows for more personalized messaging. This custom solution ensures maximum brand familiarity by showcasing the right product in the right content, at the right time, on the right screen.
Peacock Streaming Council Members will be the first partners to test these new ad innovations.
“At NBCUniversal, we are constantly developing new and impactful commercial innovations for our marketing partners. With Peacock we are testing and learning hand in hand with our partners by tapping into NBCU’s data, technology and creative capabilities combined with our iconic storytelling. Research shows that Peacock’s ad innovations deliver better results for our marketers than other CTV competitors all through the purchase funnel. No other media company out there can deliver the pristine ad environment we have already built as well as continue to evolve with our partners and viewers.”
-Laura Molen, President, Advertising and Partnerships, NBCUniversal
“NBCUniversal has always been a leader in delivering ad-supported entertainment across platforms and we are proud to be setting the bar for what brands and consumers have come to expect with Peacock’s best-in-class AVOD streaming platform. The majority of Peacock customers are opting for our ad-supported experience and we remain focused on collaborating with our brand partners to develop innovative, personalized ad experiences that continue to enhance the customer experience.”
-John Jelley, SVP of Product and UX, Peacock
“The Peacock Newfront is the next step in NBCUniversal’s series of partner events, designed to create a symphony of opportunity for our partners. At One22, we unveiled the data-driven future of media and technology. Today, we put a spotlight on the future of streaming, and how we are furthering our commitment to Commercial Innovation with two new additions to the Peacock ad experience. As we look ahead to the Upfront later this month, we’ll continue to celebrate the content that informs, entertains and shapes our world.”
