NEW YORK, NY, USA, December 19, 2022 — Mirriad, the leading in-content advertising company and 2022 AdExchanger Winner for Most Innovative TV Advertising Technology Award, will bring content from the Scripps Networks portfolio of television networks and FAST channels ION and Bounce into the Mirriad in-content marketplace, enabling brands to access diverse audiences and premium content in upcoming new holiday movies and shows.
Scripps Networks will be able to use Mirriad’s platform to integrate brands and products across ION and Bounce, including in five new original holiday movies as well as in the blockbuster series, “Johnson,” and “Finding Happy” and the newly-announced comedy “Act Your Age” premiering in the spring of 2023. There are plans to expand the partnership to additional brands within the Scripps portfolio including Court TV and BounceXL.
