Campaign Description
This Canvas execution is an element of Foxtel's Make It Yours campaign. A central aim of the campaign is repositioning Foxtel from a linear Subscription TV service to an entertainment experience that can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime -- including streamed on a mobile phone.
Foxtel needed to let customers know they could enjoy great shows like Game of Thrones not only in the lounge-room -- but on their mobile phone, using our Foxtel Go mobile app.
Many customers do not realise they have access to the app.
And we needed to let Australians know Foxtel has a large library of online "streamable shows", including every episode of Game of Thrones.

Campaign Goals
Because Facebook is primarily a mobile experience, it was an obvious choice as a crucial channel in this campaign.
We needed to demonstrate Foxtel had every episode of every season of great shows like Game of Thrones -- and they could be streamed anytime on our mobile app
We chose Facebook Canvas, because a) it was a mobile environment and b) we literally needed a “rich canvas” to do justice to the many wonderful highlights of the show’s five seasons. We want to be able to present moments that made people want to immediately watch - or rewatch - Game of Thrones on their mobile app.
A mere carousel would not do.
Facebook Canvas was an immersive and expansive format that allowed us to deliver multi-faceted messages to captivate a highly engaged audience.
Also we wanted to use UGC reactions to highlight the big Game Of Thrones moments -- and so Facebook again was an obvious environment, because it was the original source of so many of those great reactions such as The Red Wedding.
Lastly, Facebook allowed us to precisely target customers who had not been using the Foxtel Go app, via a custom audience - and lookalike audiences - created for the campaign. Of course we were also able to target Game of Thrones fans and fans of similar shows.

Campaign Performance
The Game of Thrones Canvas has performed beyond our expectations. It has delighted our customers and prospects, drawing attention to the fact that we have every episode of Game of Thrones available to stream on mobile.
It has also driven a significant jump in streams to our Game of Thrones episodes on the Foxtel Go app. These streams could be attributed back to the Facebook campaign.
Lastly, we have witnessed a significant jump in the number of downloads of our Foxtel Go app.
