Product placement is a great way of educating viewers about your brand. It has the power to change opinions, provide ideas and inspiration for viewers, or validate their purchase decisions.
As the first broadcaster to bring product placement to Irish television, we have many years of experience in creating positive and genuine placements. Throughout the process we work closely with our producers to ensure any brand placement is a natural fit with our content.
Digital editing technology can now be utilized to introduce or change product placements in post-production in non-live programmes. We partner with the Academy Award-winning company Mirriad, using their computer vision and AI-powered platform. Talk to our team if you’d like to see some examples of digital product placement in action.
We currently display a logo containing the letters PP before, and during, programmes containing product placement. We also list the names of companies that have provided products and services included in a programme in the end credits.
Product placement is permitted in films, sport, TV drama and light entertainment shows such as Ireland AM or The Six O’Clock Show, while restrictions apply to children’s programming, docu-drama series and talk shows featuring more than 20% news and current affairs elements.
TV broadcasters are regulated by the BAI, who have outlined a set of guidelines specifically for commercial messages on TV, including product placement.
