This session looks at the future disruption of Television industry analyzing topics such as Temporal Metadata and Monetizing 2nd Screen TV and the evolution of Social TV and 2nd Screen engagement to a more comprehensive TV companion experience including Communication (TVoip), Commerce (tCommerce and micropayments), Community (Live events), Transmedia(narrative shift), Gamify (vote, win, predict), Personalisation (algorithms), Context (companion apps) and Social TV (discovery and dissemination).

In-depth, international look at European, US and global solutions and perspectives - as the small screens (Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops) are taking more eyeballs from the big screen during 30 second spots. How will the current TV value chain, underpinned by brand spot advertising based on archaic, legacy audience measurement systems stay relevant with new gatekeepers, smarter devices and software, and new consumer behaviour such as media stacking?

On The Media - Television's Trying Times

On The Media - Television's Trying Times | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I listen to more than 15 hours of podcasts each week.  My most insightful hours come from listening to On The Media.  This episode focuses on the television industry and how it is adapting to new threats and opportunities.

 

KEY TAKE-AWAY:

Cable companies will be fine due to their broadband internet packages.  They still make money from downloaded and pirated data.  They are also all moving to pay-per-usage plans.

 

On the Media explores the world of television, including how the industry is coping with changing consumer habits, the future of the communal viewing experience, and television on the web.
