AOL On Announces Exclusive UK Partnership with Emirates

AOL On, the premium curated on-demand video network from AOL, has today announced an exclusive UK partnership with Emirates. The campaign will run for one month on the AOL On UK network, which launched in late March.

The deal, negotiated by Havas Media, will feature pre-roll videos promoting the airline's First Class and Business Class services onboard the Emirates A380, featuring #AllTimeGreats, Cristiano Ronaldo and Pele, competing over who is the most famous. The campaign will run across all screens including desktop, mobile, the AOL On app, and the AOL On Connected TV app.

AOL On continues to see extensive growth globally and recently announced its first investment in long-form content with the commissioning of 'Connected' - an original series that documents the lives of nine New Yorkers, which will be available to view in the UK for the first time when it launches later in the year.

Other recent successes in AOL On's growth includes the re-commissioning of #CandidlyNicole with Nicole Richie, city.ballet. with executive producer Sarah Jessica Parker, and Park Bench, a new original series with Steve Buscemi that takes viewers on a first-hand misadventure through the streets of New York. The huge success of #CandidlyNicole has resulted in the series being commissioned into a broadcast show for VH1, premiering this July.

Noel Penzer, Managing Director, AOL UK, said, "As digital video continues to grow and dominate all screens, we're very excited to be launching a campaign with Emirates that runs across the entire AOL On proposition. Video is central to AOL's strategy globally and having a brand such as Emirates on board is testament to the fantastic appetite advertisers and consumers have for premium content."
