ENGLEWOOD, Colo., March 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- DISH Media, leaders in impression-based TV advertising, today announced an exclusive partnership with Philo, the television streaming service, marking a transformative moment in the advertising landscape. Through this collaboration, DISH Media expands its addressable footprint, offering advertisers access to Philo's inventory. This partnership marks the first time that advertisers will have an external reach beyond DISH TV and SLING TV inventory through DISH Media buys, tapping into new, incremental audiences.

As the TV buying landscape becomes more impression-based, DISH Media is at the forefront of delivering advanced technologies, processes and first to market solutions in the targeted addressable space, providing the industry with greater ease, scale and optionality. With this partnership, advertisers not only gain access to a bigger addressable audience, but also receive the same detailed reporting to prove ROI backed by third-party measurement and attribution partners.

"We are particularly proud to be the partner of choice for Philo. It serves as a testament to the strength of our relationships, our leadership in innovation and the power of our monetization engine," said David Antonelli, vice president, media sales, DISH Media.

Philo's entertainment and lifestyle focused programming package features 70+ premium channels. Advertisers can tap into a diverse range of programming, including reality shows, sitcoms, lifestyle programs, classics, and content for kids. Additionally, Philo's audience overlaps with DISH Media's audience by less than 3%, ensuring advertisers can effectively reach a distinct set of viewers.

Philo's audience presents a compelling demographic profile, with a significant 51% falling within the crucial age range of 18-44, emphasizing  the opportunity for DISH Media advertisers to target this key and influential demo. Additionally, the Philo audience showcases a gender-balanced viewership with 54% identifying as female and 46% as male.

"We realize advertisers understand the value of addressable advertising and want to simplify their experience in reaching our audience," said Reed Barker, head of advertising, Philo.
