Ads.com Goes Live
Apr 29, 2002, 12:00 AM
Ads.com, Inc. today launched the first-ever comprehensive consumer website for accessing television commercials and related product/promotional information. The Ads.com website enables consumers to find virtually any current network commercial by brand name, product name, or by the particular television program in which the commercial ran. Once a commercial is located, consumers can play the commercial, receive detailed product information, and provide feedback to advertisers. Ads.com also announced today a landmark agreement with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), providing a means to legitimately run commercials on the Web, and promotional agreements with both Microsoft Windows Media and ABC.com that will expose Ads.com to millions of consumers. Ads.com has also chosen to include support for the latest edition of Windows Media for all commercials on the Ads.com website, due to the popularity of the Windows Media Player.
