Brands will now be able to advertise when the broadcaster's 4oD player is paused (Ad Pause), offer viewers the chance to see longer versions of commercials (Ad Extend) and find out more information about products and services (Ad Link).

The broadcaster's existing enhanced digital ad formats have been used by brands such as H&M and McCain.
