    Sprint is going all out right now on the Now network ad campaign. I know this isn't really anything new, but seeing A big Now Network ad on the front page of fox news right in the middle of the page was surprising. I use firefox with adblocker, and rarely see any advertisements on any sites anymore, but this one actually showed up front and center. Pretty nuts! Hopefully thats a sign that they're going to have a huge ad blitz over the next few weeks.

    I had to go check it out myself. I'm surprised it came through.

    3 Sprint ads all on one page! That's crazy. It was about the Now Network, Rumor and Rant.... no Pre.

    It's called a homepage takeover or roadblock.

    Most websites offer it to inflate the value of the homepage. Most of the time it only lasts for one day as it is very expensive. (at least at my job).
