Re: Tailoring ads @KBode I believe there are some ways of tracking, say with unique landing pages tied to the targeted ads and such.

Re: Tailoring ads Yeah I'm waiting for that day as well. They've patened use of cameras in set top boxes (and via game console cameras like the Kinect), but I think privacy worries have kept those ambitions at bay. Still, we (as the general public) seem pretty ok with having our privacy eroded slowly so long as the cool gadgets keep coming, so I imagine your scenario won't be long out.

I'm also unsure how well these targeted ad concepts work. How many years and how many millions have cable operators already spent on this via ventures like Canoe? With Nielson still struggling to even incorporate digital devices into ratings how are  these things even effectively tracked?

Re: Tailoring ads ScottEStewart0101 - "Seeing that Google Ads can't stop pushing browser ads to me for music albums I've already bought, I don't think these new targeted ads are going to have much effect with TV viewers, unless there's a camera and open mic scanning what is in a user's living room/bedroom, products mentioned, ect."

I can see it now: My TV will wake up and tell me, "You're wearing that shirt with those pants? Men's Wearhouse has much nicer choices -- and they're on sale!"

This would be a better venture for xBoxOne in my opinion. 

There are already regional ads on local network channels. Do they really think that consumers are going to like seeing ads in their menu/guide system?

Tailoring ads Addressable ads are an opportunity for marketers to particular consumer groups and potentially cut through advertising noise. But consumers may just look at them as MORE noise.

How specific can the targeting get? Can it target individuals?
