BrightLine, the interactive advertising platform for connected TV (CTV), has announced a partnership with A+E Networks to bring dynamic interactive ads to A+E Networks’ OTT apps for A&E, Lifetime, and HISTORY.
A+E Networks has enabled BrightLine’s UXTV interactive video ad product suite to further enhance their OTT ad offering for marketers and keeps A+E Networks at the forefront of TV’s transformation.
