BT celebrates human connections with launch of new BT Halo ad campaign
BT launches its latest multi-channel campaign to promote BT Halo, the UK’s best converged broadband, mobile and phone plan - redefining connectivity in and out of the home
The campaign will lead with a 90 second TV ad showcasing how BT Halo helps create millions of connections every day across the UK
The TV ad will premiere on Friday 17th January 2020 during the ad break for Love Island on ITV 2 and will run throughout January and February
BT has launched its latest advertising campaign today supporting BT Halo - the UK’s best converged plan – providing customers with ultra-reliable, superfast connectivity at home and on the go, and expert home service like they’ve never experienced with BT’s new Home Tech Experts.
The campaign launches with a 90 second TV advert that premieres on Friday 17th January during Love Island on ITV 2. The campaign focuses on the importance and far-reaching nature of human connection and highlights the power of what can happen when people come together. This includes medical care, sporting achievements, a girl searching for her biological father via social media, and record-breaking attempts.
The campaign shows gamers, musicians, students, parents and athletes benefitting from connecting with others whilst a spoken-word poet brings this to life through an inspirational poem. The ad ends with an emotional scene showing the girl finally being reunited with her father finishing with the message that BT Halo helps create millions of connections every day across the UK.
BT’s recent gaming partnership with esports team Excel also features with a fan in the ad sporting the team jersey.
The multi-channel campaign also includes out of home (OOH), both roadside and across seven major train stations, bus liveries, cinema, broadcast VoD, a 60 second TV ad, and online video, press, and social. The campaign was developed by Saatchi & Saatchi.
BT launched its BT Halo proposition in November to redefine connectivity in and out of the home. Customers signing up for BT Halo enjoy the best of BT, with a wide range of benefits available including:
