Companies like Maximum TV, which has grown exponentially this year, help bring premium TV content to the US Hispanic online market, and therefore help grow the online video advertising potential. We are pleased to have Maximum TV as a partner in our overall ad network offering to companies aiming to advertise online to US Hispanics”.
