Key Initiatives


Go Addressable

Go Addressable is an industry initiative designed to accelerate efforts to deliver scaled, addressable TV capabilities for advertisers. As a launch participant, Comcast Advertising—along with several other major TV distributors and brands—will help to achieve this through industry education, advocacy and enablement.


Agency Leadership Council (ALC)

The ALC connects senior executives across the major and independent agencies to proactively support the interests of advertising agencies, and publish insights and research that advance the industry.



Now more than ever, the use of quality data is essential to drive business results. That’s why we’ve created the Blockgraph platform to protect consumers’ data while optimizing opportunities for advertisers.
