About Finecast

Finecast operates under the core belief that TV remains the most powerful medium for advertisers and that technology will secure its future.

The company launched in 2017 as a disruptive presence in addressable TV and is now the premier Advanced TV media provider in the UK.

Finecast enables advertisers to precision-target audiences watching TV content across multiple on-demand, linear and live streaming TV environments including broadcasters, connected devices, set top boxes, over-the-top providers and game consoles - all through a single point of access with standardised measurement.

In addition to driving valuable incremental reach for traditional TV advertisers, Finecast experts help smaller and newer advertisers unlock fresh opportunities for efficient, focused, targeted TV campaigns.

The company is known for its proprietary data and technology, strategic partnerships in the broadcaster and TV ecosystems, and outstanding media performance delivered to a wide range of clients.
