Time Warner Cable Can Auction Off TV Ads

Reuters reports that Time Warner Cable currently has the ability to run AdWords like auction based selling for its video-on-demand channels. Time Warner Cable Chief Executive Glenn Britt said, "We can start doing what Google does -- auctioning off spots." Reuters provides an example; A "car manufacturers or dealerships could bid to put their ads on the television screens of viewers who favor the Speed Channel."
