AppNexus was acquired and merged with AT&T's Advertising Analytics division after their acquisition of Time Warner (Warner Bro's Studios, DC Comics, HBO, TBS, TNT, CNN, MLB, NBA) to become "Xandr". We have created a company with one purpose: Make Advertising Matter.
Xandr's Addressable TV platform technology powers the monetizing of AT&T's DIRECTV, Warner Media's Digital media properties and their soon to be launched Streaming Video platform featuring a vast universe of premium movies and TV shows.
Xandr's Digital platform enables Ad Agencies and Top Brands to buy advertising media across Addressable TV and all Digital devices/screens on the world's top 100 publishers and MVPDs.
Xandr's platform segments the data of 170 million direct AT&T customers and allows our clients to target specific audiences across all devices.
People are consuming more content than ever before. And though the combination of data and technology have made advertising more precise.
Xandr is uniquely positioned to change the landscape for the better, making advertising messages more relevant through the responsible use of data and technology.
With an expansive offering of valuable data, premium scalable content, and cross-screen distribution, we have a competitive edge — and are ready to go.
