Ads are Google’s proprietary and cost-effective TrueView in-stream cost-per-view ad format. TrueView ads are skippable after 5 seconds; advertisers pay only for ads that are viewed in their entirety (or for 30 seconds) or are interacted with. Frequence can run 15-second, non-skippable ads by request. Ads longer than 15 seconds must be run as non-skippable.
