The Video Player Companion Ad is an in-page ad unit that serves in conjunction with the Video Player Ad opportunity. When the Video Player Ad begins playing, the associated companion ad appears on the page alongside the video player. This placement provides additional sponsor branding and will persist for the remainder of the page view or until another video companion ad takes its place.

General Guidelines

  • Site reserves the right of final approval on creative assets.
  • The advertising content must be clearly identifiable as an advertisement, as opposed to a link within site content. Advertisers must be clearly identified by name in at least one frame of the advertising content.
  • Ad units that have a white or partially white background must be bound by a visible one (1) pixel non-white box built into the graphic. Creative must still meet size specifications with border.
  • All advertisers must have a privacy policy, no more than (one) 1 click from the linking page to the Ad unit.
  • Ad units must have a linking URL that resolves to an active page.
  • All Flash and third party creative must open a new window.
  • Placeholder or non-final ad content will not be considered as “proxies” for final creative.
