Future of Sports & Gaming: How Broadcasters Can Use Videogames | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Ken Morrison's insight:

My first game that I felt fit Jane McGonigal's description of 'epic' was TV Sports Football.  I really did not love football at the time.  The the TV style 'reeled' me in. Pun intended :)

New CNN debate digital experience allows viewers to play TV producer

New CNN debate digital experience allows viewers to play TV producer | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

KEN'S KEY TAKEAWAY:

This will be a cool way to share tv clips.  You can not collect clips in near real-time and share them online.

 

 

Unfortunately, I think this will mean that even more soundbites will be shared and viewed out of context.

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.

Time Warner Cable and CBS Make Up Just in Time for NFL Season

Time Warner Cable and CBS Make Up Just in Time for NFL Season | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
In a resolution that's as timely as it was expected, CBS and Time Warner Cable have kissed and made up. You'll get your Under the Dome as scheduled tonight, but more importantly, you won't miss any of your sweet professional football action.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Ken's Key Takeaway:

It is ugly. These deals are always ugly. When elephants fight, ants (subscribers) pay the price.  It is frustrating when one elephant says they are trying to defend the ants. Anyway, my key takeaway is that technology and libraries of back episodes may actually extend the length of the disputes. In an article my Mashable, they were talking about how the subcribers (ants) weren't going to miss any episodes because they were all in the library.  Perhaps it is live sports and live events that are the only thing that will force these deals.

Cable CEO Sees a Future Without TV

Cable CEO Sees a Future Without TV | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
  (Credit: Fernando Leon/Getty Images) A future without television as we know it may be in the works, says one of the top people in the cable industry.
Ken Morrison's insight:

When I heard that Jeff Bezos purchased The Washington Post newspaper yesterday, my first question was if he also purchased CableONE (my old employer).  There would be so many opportunities for creative fusion between Amazon and the relationships and resources within a top 10 cable provider.  This interview with Cablevisions's presiden and CEO James Dolan about possible futures for the cable industry.

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?
