Fire TV self-service advertising

Fire TV self-service advertising lets you create and manage ad campaigns on Fire TV to acquire and engage viewers. Create campaigns with preexisting creatives, self-optimize campaigns, and review performance in online reporting tools.

Note: This feature is currently available only for content providers in the United States.

Ad placement

Fire TV self-service advertising lets you promote titles in the Sponsored row of the Fire TV UI. Ads are served in an auction format, with eligible ads competing against each other using pre-specified bids. Each slot in the Sponsored row is auctioned individually. Bids are set as part of the campaign creation process, but bids can be changed any time from the All campaigns page inside the Amazon Advertising Console. Bid adjustments are reflected within minutes of changes.
