Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) is launching Olli, a proprietary data platform that allows advertisers to plan, activate and measure campaigns across the company’s entire portfolio of linear TV and streaming platforms.

The Olli platform will allow advertisers to target particular demographics with a new service called data-driven video, helping clients to maximise reach, mitigate waste and deepen engagement.

Data-driven video allows clients to exclude heavy linear TV viewers early in the planning process, and then redistribute the focus to balance the target audience across WBD’s linear and digital platforms. It also has tools to reduce unneeded exposures across the target audience.

Olli will operate across WBD brands including HBO and Max, discovery+, CNN, TNT Sports, Bleacher Report, Food Network, HGTV, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
