About Christmas 24 & Christmas 24+

Christmas 24 and Christmas 24+ define ‘What I love about Christmas’, a celebration of the time of year when Women 35-54 take time out of their busy schedules to sit down and watch movies with their family. During the Christmas period the reach more than doubles across the channel compared to the summer months. Example films include: Finding Santa, A Husband For Christmas and The Flight Before Christmas.
Christmas 24 also has a huge social presence with over 278,000 likes on Facebook and around 30,000 Twitter followers and are a great way to extend out from the sponsorship. The channels Christmas stunt in 2017, Merry Woofmas, drove massive engagement. The Christmas film for dogs not only had PR coverage from the Mirror Online to Good Morning Britain, but received over 8 million Instagram video views, 18 millions Facebook video views and a staggering 25 million Facebook impressions!

From late September right through the Festive period, True Movies re-brands to the much loved True Christmas.

Additional Activation: Sky AdVance

Sky AdVance is a new proposition which enables the extension of your sponsorship across multiple digital platforms. Using Sky’s customer data to connect up our media landscape on and off line, sponsors will be able to deliver Linear TV sponsorship and Digital Activity in a truly integrated way.

74% of the Christmas Movies Sponsorship audience will use the internet to do their Christmas shopping. Therefore, adding this digital element to the package, not only will the client be able to create a ‘call to action’ for their campaign outside of the sponsorship, but we can also target audiences at key buying times during the Christmas period, such as Black Friday, Boxing Day sales & January sales. Therefore giving viewers direct routes to the client’s website.
By using the Sky Advance data alongside the Christmas Movies Sponsorship, we can create a two phase approach that would drive traffic to desired client website, by;

  1. Reinforcing your sponsorship message online by understanding who has actually seen your sponsorship and re-targeting them online.
  2. Extending your sponsorship by targeting viewers online that have not seen your sponsorship on TV.
