This week we’re talking about the rise of OTT advertising in the presidential election, specifically with Joe Biden’s campaign; a record new spend for Cyber Monday; and Netflix and YouTube’s streaming platform domination this year and next year.

Joe Biden embraces OTT. The presidential candidate is investing in OTT as part of a larger ad buy in early-voting states, according to reporting from Adweek. The Biden campaign director of digital advertising for Biden’s campaign said the team recognizes “the growth of non-linear TV and will continue to invest in it as part of the paid media campaign.” The Biden campaign is spending $6 million for TV and digital ads in early-voting states.

Cyber Monday gets a new record spend. An estimated $9.2 billion, an increase of 16.9%, according to Adobe Analytics. The online shopping day is supposed to be a record day for smartphone spending, with over $3 billion, spent in 24 hours. (CNBC)
