London, 1st December 2015: Thinkbox has today revealed a major overhaul of its website, www.thinkbox.tv.

Thinkbox’s website continues to be free to access and any visitor can see all of its content. To download content and activate the ‘My Thinkbox’ section, users have to register. Registered users can also receive Thinkbox’s bi-monthly newsletters to keep up to date with all the latest news from the world of TV advertising. 

Andrew MacGillivray, Thinkbox’s Marketing Director: “Our website is our shop window. It needs to be gleaming, and with all the wonderful things TV offers on display and easy to get. The new thinkbox.tv is exactly that. It has our users at its heart and is the essential place for being in the know and keeping up to date with TV advertising. We’ll monitor the new site’s performance in the coming months and gather feedback to help continually improve it.”
