Time-shifted TV viewing becoming the norm | Advanced Television - 1 views

  • ost people currently prefer to watch “must-see TV” at the time of broadcast, the signs are that this will soon change.
  • But there are strong pointers to a not-too-distant future where time-shifting is the default behaviour for most viewers, most of the time, and live viewing is mainly reserved for event TV.
  • On-demand is seen more as a catch-up facility, with 70 per cent of on-demand users claiming they only use on-demand services to catch up on programmes they have missed. In addition, the availability of on-demand services on other screens is key to many, with 47 per cent of on-demand users stating that they often use on-demand services to watch programmes when they are not in front of a TV set.

  • PVRs are seen as more convenient and reliable than on-demand TV viewing.
  • The social opportunity to “media-mesh” with live content is also a factor that will surely continue to influence viewing choices.

Can Twitter Save TV? (And Can TV Save Twitter?) - Forbes - 0 views

  • To its 200 million-plus active users, Twitter is many things: a social network, a short-form messaging service, a news wire, a tool for self-expression — even, some believe, a force for global political change. But the company itself seems far more keen to position itself among its users — and even better, potential users – as a TV companion, an indispensable tool to keep up with, discuss and even influence the outcomes of shows and live events like sporting contests and political debates.
  • This “second screen experience” turns TV into a participatory activity, allowing Twitter users to broadcast wisecracks, critiques and theories in real-time; the networks, in turn, share the behind-the-scenes worlds of writers’ rooms and dressing rooms, 140 characters at a time.

Data Dive: US TV Ad Spend and Influence (Updated - Q2 2013 Data) - 0 views

  • TV ad spending growth continues to exceed the ad industry average, at least according to Kantar Media figures.
  • TV advertising has for now been able to withstand the digital onslaught that has contributed to plummeting print spend. (An analysis of TV versus online video consumption can be found here.)
  • TV currently remains easily the largest advertising medium in the US. (No huge surprises there.) Last year, PwC estimated that advertisers spent $63.8 billion on TV, about 75% more than they did on online ads and more than they did on all other traditional media combined.

Your iPad Is Now Your Kid's TV | Adweek - 0 views

  • The Walt Disney Co. last week unveiled perhaps the most radical tablet-related development, saying that its new Disney Junior series, Sheriff Callie’s Wild West, will stream to tablets before it ever hits the linear feed.
  • Thus far, the initial viewer-pattern data has been encouraging. “In the past year and a half, we’ve seen video viewing just skyrocket across mobile,” said Beau Teague, Cartoon Network’s senior director of user experience. “Our mobile viewing has surpassed even viewing on the desktop site.”
  • Some of that has to do with the weirdly obsessive way in which younger children (say, ages 2-8) tend to sample on-demand content.

    “We definitely see a lot of repeat viewing,” Teague said. “Kids will return to favorite episodes and favorite clips. They’ll seek out whatever the catchphrase was from last night’s episode of Adventure Time.”

Experts: Social Data Is Key to Measuring Television Success - 0 views

  • Seevibes created its own “Seevibes Score” — a composite score that consolidates data on market share, social impressions, loyalty levels, engagement rate, frequency, and level of response — to gauge how a show is performing socially. “The level of audience engagement with TV via social networks with television has surged by 500% year-after-year. This can make it difficult to compare broadcast numbers over time,” explains Maisonnave
  • “These social data points are giving us a new barometer for success or failure when we’re talking about engaging TV audiences,” says Youngling. “Content, both programmatic and advertorial, is now subject to an entirely new set of consumer-driven metrics. We talked about must-see TV back in the Seinfeld days, and now it’s evolving into the idea of must-comment TV.”
  • “Twitter didn’t have to train or persuade people to change their behavior,” says Bugbee of the network’s television chatter. “It just had to capitalize on what people were already doing. I think that’s why Twitter’s so powerful: it’s easy, it’s obvious, and it’s open.”

  • “There are calls to action in all sorts of programming that are encouraging people to get involved and continue the dialog with that programming,” says Youngling. “For brands, the data is really showing that it’s incredibly impactful and meaningful. When you give audiences the opportunity to interact, they will.”
  • “If shows don’t get good ratings they don’t stay on the air,” says Bugbee. “You see television encouraging social activity with hashtags on shows. Ostensibly, if I’m not watching Dancing with the Stars and I see a lot of posts from my friends who are talking about it, maybe I should tune in.”

Limited-Series TV and the Web: A Perfect Marriage | Seamus Condron | - 0 views

  • You want your new definition of social TV? There you have it. It's not a useless check-in app, it's short, sometimes sweet, sometimes powerful, highly consumable content. When you marry that with TV content that shares the same characteristics, you have a bright future for quality television and its second screen.
  • Limited series, anthology formats, and binge viewing Netflix shows are beginning to resemble how one-offs like the Super Bowl or the Grammy's behave on the Web, where there's a groundswell of conversation for a limited period of time.

Millennials Watch Video On Smartphones - Business Insider - 0 views

  • YuMe conducted a study that tracked how millennials consume media, finding that 13% watch video content on their smartphones while they work, while another 13% watch while they shop. In total, 94% of millennials are multitasking (and likely distracted) while viewing content.
  • Smartphones and tablets, not televisions, are the gateway to a millennial audience. Millennials recall brands at a much better rate when they're on mobile devices, and they think of the TV as old-fashioned. In fact, only 3.1% of millennials consider brands that advertise on TV as being "modern."
  • More than twice that number think of smartphone advertisers as having "modern" brands.
