Advertisers Shoot and Score with Curated Sports Collections on VIZIO


Sports Mania Visible Mock V2

VIZIO is standing up its Sports Mania collection, bringing together a mix of live and on-demand sports from premium apps and FAST channels in time for the big college basketball tournament. The collection goes live today and will run through April 9.


Sponsored by Visible, the Sports Mania collection offers one-click access to basketball content across different networks streaming the games and WatchFree+ channels that offer basketball-related documentaries, movies, series and more. 


When viewers power on their TVs, they are presented with a carefully curated selection of relevant content that presents opportunities to discover everything they need to jump into current games, the history of the tournament, and basketball-related featured entertainment. 


With viewers tuning in to several streaming services throughout March and early April, the VIZIO Home Screen provides a one-stop destination to dive into all things basketball with programming with featured carousels including: 

  • Center Court: Featuring a mix of content types/top content from the collection featured within the page
  • Slam Dunk: Popular Sports Movies: Space Jam, Love & Basketball, Friday Night Lights, Rocky
  • Take Your Shot: Underdog Stories: Featuring titles like Glory Road, 42, A League of Their Own


Last year’s Sports Mania Hub was the collection with the most engaged on VIZIO’s Home Screen during March and early April 2023, with engagement rates 250% higher than the benchmark.


As the sponsor of this Hub, Visible has an opportunity to achieve a level of reach and engagement that far exceeds traditional linear tactics. 


With VIZIO Home Screen sponsorship capabilities throughout the tournament, generating extra reach is a layup comparable to ads placed within the games themselves. Throughout the month, the Sports Mania Hub offers advertisers a co-branded Home Screen Hero unit, a co-branded splash page, a dedicated Discovery carousel, and a feature card in both the Collections and Featured carousels. 


Don’t miss your shot to connect with millions of fans directly from the VIZIO Home Screen.
