iflix and ada team up!

iflix and ada’s strategic partnership to enable delivery of online opportunities for brands across Asia

iflix, the leading entertainment service for emerging markets and ada (analytics. data. advertising), the largest integrated digital marketing business across South and South East Asia, have announced their groundbreaking regional partnership to offer brands exciting new opportunities for deep audience engagement across Asia, beginning with Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Cambodia.
The partnership will be housed under ada’s supply-side business, adaReach.
Through this strategic regional partnership, brands/ advertisers have:

    • Access to an extensive range of brand-safe premium inventory in top local shows with 100 per cent viewability – through sponsorship, video & live stream, branded content & TVC integration;
  • Ability to create highly targeted and efficient and effective campaigns, leveraging first-party and contextual data

ada unlocks the full potential in digital by combining data science, content/ creative and technology, for brands. ada houses the largest telco-powered proprietary data management platform (DMP), XAct, which is uniquely positioned to optimise consumer journey planning, customer profiling and intent targeting.
With an average viewing session of approximately 2 hours per user daily, iflix maintains one of the highest active viewing durations of any digital service globally.

This sustained level of engagement, combined with the service’s extensive local reach has allowed iflix to develop deep insight on customer preferences and behaviours.

Additionally, with mobile viewing comprising 85 per cent of traffic on the service, there are significant opportunities for deeper audience engagement and relationship building.

“This partnership with ada is a very important step in our directive to work closely with leading brands to make premium content available to audiences at an even larger mass scale.

Together, we offer advertisers a unique proposition to engage with customers through premium, popular content in a 100 per cent brand safe environment.

“We have already seen incredible demand from brands across the region,” said Jonas Engwall, iflix Head of Asia.

“Premium VOD is fast-replacing pay television as Asia’s cord-cutting, mobile-first middle-class gains spending power. Combining iflix’s video inventory with our mobile analytics data, data science expertise and proprietary DMP, we’re very excited to empower brands to deliver more engaging, relevant and highly viewable ads to viewers in the region,” said Srinivas Gattamneni, ada CEO.

Now available to over one billion consumers throughout Asia, the Middle East and Africa, iflix has established itself as the clear market leader in video streaming.

Offering consumers a vast library of top Hollywood, regional, and local TV shows and movies, including many first run exclusives and award-winning programs, each subscription allows users to access the service on up to five devices, including phones, laptops, tablets, and television sets, for viewing wherever, whenever.

ada has also recently appointed WPP’s Wunderman Anurag Gupta as Chief of Agency Practice and COO. Axiata Digital announced the launch of ada, an integrated digital marketing business unlocking brand potential in digital late March 2018. AdParlor serves as a product under the ada umbrella.
