NEW YORK, NY – December 2, 2015 — Cablevision Systems Corporation today announced a long-term addressable TV partnership with MODI Media, GroupM’s advanced television business. This deal gives MODI Media the ability to reach premium audiences through impressions-based inventory for its clients, complete with advanced campaign planning, measurement and analytics, and will support the continued rapid growth of Modi’s addressable TV business.
The partnership provides MODI Media access to Cablevision’s Total Audience Application, aproprietary platform that automates planning and optimization of advanced TV advertising campaigns. Using the platform, MODI Media will be able to break free from the arduous manual campaign planning process undertaken by most agencies.

―MODI is a true pioneer in the advanced advertising space, and we are extremely proud to partner with them in scaling addressable and data driven TV advertising,‖ said Ben Tatta, President of Cablevision Media Sales. “By making ad operations, data and analytics more turnkey, we hope to streamline the entire campaign process for Modi and their clients.‖
