YouTube Lets Viewers Skip Over Ads

YouTube is launching its TrueView ad platform, which advertisers approve of, that will allow users to skip over ads that they are not interested in. The format is new to YouTube, which in the past have embedded banner ads that viewers can minimize. With TrueView, users are forced to watch the first 5 seconds of an ad, after which they can skip and return to their video. Another component of TrueView is that it will let users choose, for some videos, between three different pre-roll ads that’s similar in concept to what Hulu has been doing.
