Canoe Ventures, an advertising tech company that enables dynamic ad insertion (DAI) to national television programming networks, has added Frontier Communications to its footprint of VOD-DAI television distributors.

Frontier joins Charter Communications, Comcast Corporation and Cox Communications as the fourth MVPD to use Canoe’s nationwide Service Assurance platform that runs thousands of VOD-DAI ad campaigns each quarter on behalf of more than 100 national television networks across all of the top 150 DMAs.

Under the agreement, Canoe will integrate its current national programmers to begin running VOD-DAI campaigns across Frontier’s VOD-enabled subscriber base with Canoe service assurance, which includes ad map management, monitoring, resolution and analytics.
