Buying ads on Xbox One RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - I want to promote our XBox One app. When i go to attract/ ad campaign and try to book a campaign however, there doesn't seem to be any specification for the ad running only across Xbox on? I do i book an ad campaign that just runs on Xbox One devices?

    >>When i go to attract/ ad campaign and try to book a campaign however, there doesn't seem to be any specification for the ad running only across Xbox on?

    In the Audience Page which comes up after you completing the Campaign details page,you will be able to choose the device types on which you want these ads to appear (only the device types supported by your app are shown).

    For more info and steps, you could refer to Create an ad campaign for your app.

  • Hi Annievia - thanks for your reply but it doesn't really answer my question. These are the options i get in audience.

    Devices:

    PC/ Tablet , Phone , All

    Surface:

    App , Universal

    Our app is on Xbox One but there is no mention of Xbox One. A campaign on PC, Tablet or Phone is no good to us as we don't use our app on those devices. How do we do this on Xbox One?

  • Hi EoghanC,

    Sorry for the delay response.

    >>A campaign on PC, Tablet or Phone is no good to us as we don't use our app on those devices. How do we do this on Xbox One?

    If there is no single option for "Xbox One" and there is an option named "All", I think you might choose this "All". 

    This campaign you paid for will run in any app that matches your app’s device and category. So if your app only runs on Xbox One devices, then the ad campaign can only run in Xbox One apps (you will need to choose "App" as the Surface not "Universal"). But personally, "Universal" is a pretty good choice too. Choosing "App" allows your ad appear within apps. However "Universal" allows your ad to appear within apps, plus MSN.com, Outlook.com, Skype, and other Microsoft premium properties.

    Best Regards,
