Video: Commercial Delivery

Here is the information on how to supply Video assets for Linear TV, all VOD, Big Screen and Clickable.

Linear TV, all VOD, Big Screen and Clickable
Linear TV, all VOD, Big Screen and Clickable
  • Creative Agencies need to upload their commercial copy to Clearcast and copy instructions via Caria
  • Clearcast gives Sky Media’s Commercial Operations team the required approvals and when instructions are sent via Caria, copy begins to transcode automatically once it has been delivered.
  • VOD copy needs to be fully approved for Linear by Clearcast
  • Creatives have a choice of three delivery centres (Adstream, Honeycomb, Peach) to supply commercials and they need to be delivered to BOTH Sky UK/TV AND Sky Online.
  • Clickable campaigns can be supplied to Sky Online only.
  • Copy and instructions need to be delivered 6 working days prior to start of campaign to allow time for sales/campaign managers/ops to set copy to live, and potentially to fix any technical issues.
