"TV, for the most part, has been un-measurable. We're making TV as accountable as the Internet is. We have to prove ourselves. With the Internet, it was a nascent industry when we entered it. In TV, we're novices in an entrenched industry."1

- Keval Desai, Director of Product Management, Google TV Ad Program in 2008.

"The only way that Google is going to take any share on TV is if they can take advantage of data to provide targeted advertising that is not available today."2

- Ross Sandler, an analyst with RBC Capital Markets3 in 2008.


On December 03, 2008, Google Inc. (Google) signed a deal with Hallmark Channel to enable advertisers to purchase ad spots on the channel through the Google TV Ads program. In September 2008, Google had entered into similar deals with Bloomberg TV and NBC Universal's cable networks.

All these deals were part of Google's efforts to establish itself outside the Internet, by entering new media domains. The Google TV Ads program was a means to capture a share in the estimated US$ 74 billion TV ad market in the United States.
