Nexstar Digital Partners With Mediaocean
Nexstar Digital today entered into a multiyear partnership with Mediaocean and its Connect Partner Program. The partnership lets advertisers use Mediaocean’s Spectra Platform to access Nexstar’s premium OTT, digital video, display, streaming audio and linear broadcast inventory.
According to the companies, “for the first time, advertisers can now shape multichannel, multimarket media buys across OTT, linear television and all other digital channels, resulting in comprehensive cross-platform reach and frequency control to generate a greater return on their marketing spend.”
The partnership is effective immediately, with Nexstar Media’s advertising inventory available through Spectra beginning today.
Nexstar Digital will bring to the partnership:
- Nexstar’s audience across 115 markets, 317 mobile apps, and 142 websites, reaching 63% of U.S. TV households.
- Over 106,000,000 unique visitors per month across all Nexstar Digital properties.
- Curated inventory and multi-channel activation with custom data modeling by brand and/or campaign KPIs.

As part of this partnership, Mediaocean has fully integrated Nexstar Digital’s video and OTT inventory into its Spectra Platform, which it says “supports the largest advertising agencies in the world with the latest tools and technologies.” As a result, agencies can now leverage Spectra to discover, customize and access the complete suite of Nexstar Media Group’s advertising inventory [both digital and linear].
“By tapping into Nexstar Digital’s first party-data,” the company says, “technology, and creative, advertisers get the ability to deliver messages directly to changing audiences across geographies.”
