Hulu’s ads are going “programmatic”: The Internet TV site is launching an invitation-only ad-buying marketplace powered by Facebook’s LiveRail, to let marketers target ads using data about who’s watching the video.

“The marketplace has shown that data is overwhelmingly the new currency,” said Peter Naylor, Hulu’s SVP of advertising, in announcing the initiative.
