Inline video advertising through all Time Out content pages


Our video platform allows you to circulate your video advertising within our content. Video commences once the user is below the fold, while sound is activated on mouse-over. Consumers can engage with the video and click through to your desired landing page.

Video units are present on all article pages. Videos only render if visible to the user, collapse when video is finished, and pause if/when no longer visible.

Video are booked ‘per video start’ and around 62% of page impressions result in a video start.
