NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Teads, the inventors of native video advertising and a global monetization platform for publishers, today announced a partnership with Mashable, the leading media company for the digital generation, to serve as its preferred native video advertising provider.

Teads will be a provider for native video advertising with its flagship inRead format, which places video advertising within editorial content while the video is visible. Teads' inRead format guarantees high viewability rates and gives the power of choice to the user by allowing them to skip the video if they don't want to watch it.

In addition to Mashable, Teads' global premium publisher platform includes Forbes, Slate, Bonnier Corp, The Guardian, The Telegraph, and Nikkei, amongst many others.
A Mashable spokesperson said, "We continue to see a huge increase in advertisers looking to run video natively across our site and think Teads is uniquely positioned to help us meet this demand. We were drawn to Teads' inRead format because it doesn't compromise the user experience and we think it will be well received by our advertising partners."
Jim Daily, Teads' President for U.S. and Canada, said, "We know that users don't want to be interrupted by intrusive video advertising when they're reading their favorite content online and with Teads' inRead, Mashable will be able to maximize video inventory while also respecting its readers. We're extremely excited to be working with such a prestigious publisher as Mashable and look forward to helping them bolster their video efforts."
