For first-time users of our system it is required to send us a test file for our approval in advance, otherwise we are unable to guarantee a broadcast of the advert. Please take into account that we need the file five working days before the broadcast, as they still need to be approved regarding technical specificationsand content. If necessary, however, a shorter term solution can be arranged on demand.
