We make TV advertising perform.

Our Story

Simulmedia was founded in 2008 with the belief that data-optimized advertising on national linear TV would help brands grow. Now, having run thousands of campaigns for top brands and networks, there are countless others who share our belief. Our powerful, predictive TV ad platform helps brands reach more of their target audience and deliver better ROI than any other advanced TV solution.

Through a combination of partnerships with leading data and measurement providers, as well as with over 130 national TV networks, our patented technology, plus years of viewing history from millions of homes, we are able to use TV to drive cost-efficient scale faster and more precisely than any other provider.

Simulmedia uses data, science, and software to target audiences at national scale, and drive business outcomes for advertisers.
