Hello. Sarofsky here with a quick take on FAST TV.

Think FAST

FAST TV (Free Ad-Supported Streaming Television) is a brand messaging playground.

It provides the opportunity to match ad content to TV context and increase brand impact 39% to 49%. To entertain in a way viewers typically only get from Super Bowl ads (without a super-sized ad budget). This is big news for brands.
