The new releases here ran on TV for the first time yesterday.

Among the new releases, Hearthstone urges consumers to take their fights inside, on its mobile game app; Microsoft is seeing quadruple with its spot for the Asus T102; Gillette uses the release of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" to promote Fusion ProShield gift packs; and Spotify creates a music video for "On Hold" by The xx.
