Can you pay to put a message on the Jumbotron in Times Square
Not really sure if this is TravelBuzz worthy topic but I am doing some research for some friends visiting New York. He would like to see about putting a "Will You Marry Me" message to his girlfriend on the screen. Do they accept offers like this?
Yes you can rent it, but I don't have the details, and the person in the office who may know is at lunch. NBC I believe is responsible for the content along with Panasonic, so you may want to start with NBC.
The official name is astrovision, that may help in the search. If I can find out more, I'll edit this message.
From a trip I took in July last year, I noticed that if you go to the Times Square Tourist Information Centre you can get a picture taken (and I assume message as well) and it will be placed up on the electronic billboards outside (not sure if specifically the Jumbotron). It's free, but I don't know how long it is placed up there for, or how they give you a time, etc.

Thanks for the redeeming value of this post John. Seriously, they are visiting NYC the weekend of April 23rd. I can guarantee that being a princess and all I won't be doing the asking when it comes to marriage.

The building (1 Times Square) is managed by Sherwood Equities, and the signs are managed by SE's subsidiary, Sherwood Outdoors. I'm sure they would have information on potential advertising oppportunities:
