Hoppr powers StarHub digital TV advertising

March 20, 2023

Advertising technology company Hoppr has launched its interactive advertising technology across the media assets of Singapore multiplay operator StarHub.

Hoppr’s rich media interactive advertising formats are being deployed across StarHub’s over-the- top (OTT) service for both live and video-on-demand (VoD) content.

“Hoppr is delighted to be working with StarHub to help them generate new revenue from premium advertising formats across their media assets. Our technology enables viewers to interact with advertising in ways that enhance, rather than detract from the viewer experience,” declared Joe Prusz, Hoppr CEO.

StarHub initially trialled Hoppr’s technology in a successful pilot that involved placing Hoppr’s new advertising formats over various content and assets of StarHub TV.

“There has been a tremendous amount of evolution in the technologies that underpin digital advertising, allowing for much higher levels of precision,” advised Yann Courqueux, StarHub Vice President, Home Product. “This will be critical in delivering the right messages to the right audience at the right time, to enable integrated experiences that are more interactive, immersive and in-tune with audiences’ tastes and desires,”

“With English Premier League on StarHub, we have gone beyond conventional banner ads, and are first in Singapore to utilise experiential advertising solutions such as ‘Centre Circle’, whereby our sponsor’s brand is superimposed onto the centre circle of the football field at kick-offs. This illustrates the market appetite for innovative brand inclusion similar to what Hoppr is powering, enabling us to delight and engage our customers in a fresh, fun, and non-disruptive way,” he added.

Hoppr’s solution automates and integrates programmatic advertising across Connected TV, mobile devices and other digital native engagement environments.

The company’s turnkey marketing and commercialisation vehicle for VoD combines several key fundamentals to enable brands to leverage VoD as a mechanism to generate additional revenue.

“Hoppr is at the forefront of the development of new, digital advertising formats that deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time. In addition, our advanced data and analytics allows for precision advertising direct to the living room,” said Prusz.

Feedback from StarHub viewers during the initial trial of Hoppr’s new advertising formats was overwhelmingly positive, which is being hailed as a step change from traditional analogue advertising and has now been deployed across the majority of the customer base.
