My Code Acquires Veranda Entertainment
My Code, the largest multicultural digital media company in the United States which enables publishers, storytellers, brands and agencies to connect with diverse audiences, today announced the completion of its acquisition of Veranda Entertainment, a leading technology and entertainment company that distributes multicultural and Spanish-language film and television content across multiple Connected TV (CTV) platforms.

Over the last few years, multicultural audiences, especially Hispanic consumers, have adopted CTV streaming apps at a higher rate compared to the general population, presenting a significant opportunity to marketers. With this acquisition, My Code can now offer its marketing partners direct access to advertising inventory in Veranda’s catalog, whose well-established connections with content producers are positioned to showcase quality content to underserved U.S. Hispanic audiences. To grow its influence in the CTV space, My Code will work closely with Veranda’s channels and programming, including Butaca TV, Oro TV, Saborear TV and Judge Faith, which provide hundreds of original film and television series worldwide. These channels along with Veranda’s leading AVOD platform, Butaca TV, will help brands and advertisers select media inventory that reaches connected audiences at scale.

“As we continue to expand My Code’s portfolio to bring all multicultural digital services under one brand, the CTV market has been a huge priority for us, which is why the Veranda Entertainment acquisition is the natural next step,” said Parker Morse, CEO and founder of My Code.

“As we continue to expand My Code’s portfolio to bring all multicultural digital services under one brand, the CTV market has been a huge priority for us, which is why the Veranda Entertainment acquisition is the natural next step,” said Parker Morse, CEO and founder of My Code. “Veranda’s award-winning team have built a platform that amplifies the voice of today’s Hispanic audience and we look forward to integrating our robust advertising, custom creative and branded content solutions to help advertisers grow ad revenue, viewership and distribution possibilities to global CTV audiences.”

Since launching in 2004, Veranda has built an extensive network of global publishers, content producers, media companies, smart television manufacturers and digital platforms to distribute content and branded channels. Their distribution channels include general market television, as well as contemporary and classic Spanish-language cinema. To share content with an increasingly globalized audience, Veranda works with premier distribution platforms including Amazon, YouTube, Pluto, Tubi, The Roku Channel, Plex, Samsung TV Plus and Vizio. With a library of over 175 titles and 1500 hours of content, Veranda logs in over 100M hours of content consumed annually.

“My Code’s dedication to establishing meaningful connections with Hispanic and multicultural audiences has never been more important and we’re aligned with their vision to optimize the CTV experience for both advertisers and consumers,” said Randall Green, CEO at Veranda. “My Code brings a wealth of demand from advertisers and marketing partners that are a perfect fit for Veranda’s on-demand channels as audiences continue to take advantage of the accessibility of digital content.”

My Code’s acquisition of Veranda follows a series of publisher deals with premier multicultural media platforms. Prior to acquiring Veranda, My Code closed an acquisition with Impremedia, the leading Hispanic news and information company that includes La Opinión, the nation’s #1 Spanish-language daily newspaper. My Code will continue finalizing strategic partnerships with key media stakeholders to make it easier for marketers to have a comprehensive plan that addresses the lack of quality content for multicultural audiences who are often exposed to messaging that does not meet their consumer sentiments.

Outdoor advertising technology leaders Adkom, Blip, and Broadsign today (May 11th, 2023) announced a technology collaboration that brings more than 2,000 large format, roadside digital billboards located in more than 190 markets to the Broadsign supply-side-platform (SSP). Advertisers and media buying agencies around the world can now access the inventory via any of the demand-side-platforms (DSPs) integrated with the Broadsign SSP, including the Broadsign Ads DSP, while independent roadside media owners on the Adkom and Blip networks gain new programmatic revenue opportunities.

Optimising campaigns, providing real-time reporting, ensuring prompt creative approval, and offering service to our customers on both sides of the transaction is essential to this mission, and our work with Broadsign will allow us to build on that,” said Andy Gotshalk, vice president of programmatic for Adkom and Blip. “We’ve watched and admired Broadsign’s efforts in the programmatic DOOH space and are excited to work with them to expand programmatic access to Adkom and Blip network inventory, which will ultimately serve the greater OOH industry.” “Programmatic DOOH is advancing at a rapid pace, and more advertisers and agencies embracing the channel want access to unique and targeted inventory via Adkom and Blip offerings,” explained John Dolan, global head of media sales & service, Broadsign. “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Adkom and Blip to bring Broadsign-supported DSPs and media buyers a host of new roadside screens, as demand for this kind of inventory continues to surge.” About Broadsign Broadsign empowers publishers, agencies, and brands to harness the power of out-of-home and connect with audiences across the globe.
