When they do, ad breaks are automatically reduced in length so they can catch up with the schedule or the live action. Yet, despite a per-session reduction in ad-load, total advertising yield on the service is up for two reasons: people are watching more content, and the value of advertising – because it is targeted – has risen. Server-side DAI and new start-over technology from Yospace underpin the innovation.
