Montreal's Seevibes acquires French social analytics firm TvTweet, opens office in Fran... - 0 views

  • The service analyzes over 3,000 TV shows across “100%” of broadcasters and cable TV networks in Canada, recording 20 million relevant social media interactions each week. The idea is that clients – which currently include Quebecor Media, CBC, and Bell Media – can analyze posts and tweets, both for their own shows and channels, but also the industry over all, and adjust their social media strategy accordingly.
  • TvTweet, founded in Bordeaux, France in 2011, has found similar success in the European market, and is working with companies such as Orange, TF1 and NRJ12 across seven different countries.

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.

GetGlue Sale: Let the Second-Screen Shakeout Begin | Variety - 0 views

  • So what’s to become of the dozens of startups that came out of the second-screen craze? “There’s definitely going to be a lot of consolidation that happens,” said Jesse Redniss,
  • According to i.TV, GetGlue will remain a separate product while letting it benefit from i.TV’s “broader platform of partners and services.” Provo, Utah-based i.TV claims 15 million people use its TV app every month. ”Together, i.TV and GetGlue will reshape the social TV and second screen landscape,” i.TV CEO Brad Pelo said in announcing the deal.
  • In a fight for survival, ConnecTV has pivoted its strategy. Last week the startup, whose investors include 10 broadcast station groups, released an overhaul of its app refocused on a simple idea: It lets users “clip” six-second video segments from among 400 live TV channels and share them on Twitter and Facebook, via a link in email or within the app.

  • ConnecTV’s previous app had signed up only 980,000 registered users; other social TV players are similarly tiny. U.K. second-screen import Zeebox, even with the backing of NBCU, Comcast and Viacom, has tallied only around 3.5 million registered users in the U.S. (it doesn’t disclose how many are active). Viggle, which rewards users for tuning in to TV, has made very little headway: It counted just 757,273 monthly active users for June.
  • An eMarketer analysis this month of several industry surveys conducted this year showed that just 15%-17% of TV viewers engaged in real-time socializing about the TV shows they were watching.

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.

Multiple TV related apps cooperate to amplify their advantages - nScreenMedia - 0 views

  • A mélange of TV resource apps are getting together to help each other, and their users. Dijit, Thuuz, Tomorrowish, IVA and Simple.TV are partnering to integrate their products and services. The theory seems to be that they are stronger working together, rather than alone. Given the non-competitive positioning of each, this could be a boon for TV viewers.

    First a quick summary of what each of the companies does. Dijit’s NextGuide helps TV viewers discover new TV shows and remember to watch them. Thuuz provides real-time sports updates helping fans tune to the most interesting game on TV at any given time. Tomorrowish let’s viewers watching a show or event on-demand replay the social media buzz from the first broadcast. Internet Video Archive (IVA) specializes in providing show and movie trailers. Simple.TV provides live TV and network DVR services.

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.

Who Rules The Second Screen, Facebook Or Twitter? - 1 views

  • Despite a user base only 20% the size of Facebook’s, Twitter routinely hosts discussions that rival the size of those taking place on the larger platform. If you narrow the comparison down to original content — Tweets versus Posts — Twitter boasted more interaction around nearly all of the broadcasts SecondSync examined in its study.
  • The difference in time windows is just one of several apples-to-oranges problems that crop up when attempting to compare second-screen patterns across the two platforms. A more substantive one is how to weight the various types of actions permitted in both places. Is a Like more akin to a retweet or a Favorite?
  • But even a comparison that assumes that comments are worth as much as original posts suggests that Twitter owns a disproportionate share of TV discussions.
    Jeff Bercovici Forbes Staff
    Thanks so much for sharing. The study quoted liberally, thatFB commissioned by the way, is neither objective or thorough. Second Synch and FB are partners and the "data" was supplied by FB. The author is to be commended for recognizing the "apples to oranges" aspects of the comparison of FB to Twitter but I think the idea that Social Media will be zero sum arena likely misses some interesting analysis. Of all things, social media is never going to be zero sum, though marketers will have to make decisions about one vs. another for their clients needs. Obviously a blog post isn't profound but this one doesn't exactly further the discussion as much draw a tidy conclusion rather than the more nuanced reality that, IMHO, is a more interesting.
