Sling TV Launched its First Advertising Campaign Aimed at Millennials

Sling TV today released its first advertising campaign nationally across TV, social and digital platforms. The #TakeBackTV campaign targets Sling TV’s strategic audience: the millennial generation that is increasingly opting out of traditional pay-TV subscriptions.

"Millennials have polarizing feelings about TV; they love the content, but hate the pay-TV model,” said Glenn Eisen, Chief Marketing Officer of Sling TV. “The #TakeBackTV campaign introduces Sling TV as a new model and solution for the millennial audience. It directly mirrors their sentiment toward the pain points that accompany traditional pay-TV, in an exaggerated, humorous and fun way.”

"When creating the campaign, we focused on the needs, attitudes and behaviors of millennials and their sentiment toward traditional pay-TV. In the videos, you’ll see this sentiment come to life, as consumers battle “Old TV” pain points like long-term contracts, expensive programming bundles, high prices, hidden fees and poor customer service."

The inaugural creative features kids personifying “Old TV” by heckling customers with the pain points of traditional pay-TV, including long-term contracts, expensive programming bundles, high prices, hidden fees and poor customer service.
