Roadblocks

A high impact display solution and incredibly versatile, Roadblocks display two ad units simultaneously, providing 100% share of screen.

Roadblocks can be highly targeted to maximise reach and minimise potential wastage.  Bought on a CPM, as many or as little Roadblock impression can be purchased - as needed. Roadblocks can also include audience targeting and frequency capping to ensure they reach the intended target audience.
