My Ads are not running

Wed Sep 19, 2018 2:49 pm

Hello,

I started my channel and checked "Monetized" however, I have yet to see any commercial show on my channel.  It's been over a month now.  Did I miss a step?

Hi,
Ads won't just automatically run, unless you have several thousand hours of viewing time per month.  There is a minimum number of hours the people have to view your channel before advertising will be started.  I think that it is several thousand hours of monthly viewing before ads start to run. 
Have you contacted the Roku folks to find out what that threshold number of hours might be?
There are several Roku folks who post in this forum, they might be able to answer this for you.

I don't think there is a requirement for viewership hours before ads run. You have the option to use Roku or a third party for your ads. With either one, it takes a few days before ads will appear. And, there's no guarantee that an ad will run during a requested ad break. Most of us use third party ad providers because they are more reliable.

Ok That makes sense.

I am going with a company called Vidillion.  Any advise on this company.  They charge such a high startup.  $500.  Do you have a 3rd party you recommend?

The only reason I had said that was when I put up my first channel I asked a Roku rep about running the ads.  I was told that Roku doesn't start advertising until there are over 12,000 hours of viewing in a single month. I may have been misinformed or a year ago the information was different.
Thanks Baradanikto for clarifying. Maybe now I can get some ads running.

MiniFlyxTv, if you're paying someone to run your ads, you shouldn't be.  There are lots of ad providers that share the revenue with you.  There's no need for you to pay for that service.  Some of those companies monitor this forum.  If they see your post, I'm sure they will contact you.

I recall something like that, but I think that refers to payout. So they won't pay your first Quarter until you've reached $50 or something, which may be 12,000 ads or something. Had trouble with RAF anyway, not sure why they don't support it very well. OP sent you a PM
