Since MoPub introduced video ads on MoPub Marketplace nearly two years ago, many companies have declared 2015 to be the “year of video ads” with U.S. programmatic video advertising spend estimated to hit $3.8 billion in 2016. However, for mobile app publishers, this only rings true when there is real revenue to support these claims.
We’ve seen amazing results from video ads on MoPub’s platform this year:
MoPub’s video platform has made publishers millions in revenue from video ads. Premium game developer SEGA is successfully monetizing with video ads across their award-winning portfolio of apps.

More Exciting Innovations To Come
We’re continuing to invest in video ad monetization, including our latest innovation in network mediation: rewarded video ads. Rewarded video ads allow publishers to reward users for watching a video with some form of in-game virtual reward (i.e., gold, coins, power-ups) and is distributed to the user after a successful video completion.
We look forward to providing publishers with yet another way to earn more ad revenue from networks. To participate in the private beta for rewarded video ad network mediation, existing MoPub clients can contact your account manager or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for more exciting announcements about the MoPub Ads Video Solution and our overall platform.
