TV Advertising on Virgin Media Television

Television is one of the most powerful and emotive advertising platforms available. TV advertising has the ability to appeal to multiple senses through its combination of visuals, sound, text and motion. TV has unbeatable scale and reach, with the average Irish adult watching an average of 3 hours and 21 minutes each day.
