TV is no longer where TV series premiere

TV is no longer where TV series premiere | The second age of TV | Scoop.it
As the promotional and marketing campaigns for the new fall shows begin to ramp up, are you starting to feel like you can’t possibly wait another month to watch that new series you’re excited about? In many cases, you no longer have to. While viewers are taking longer than ever to watch TV shows, when...
Edouard De Witte's insight:

Cela avait commencé par les chaines du câble US qui dévoilaient le premier épisode de leur nouvelle série en le publiant sur le web quelques jours avant la première diffusion TV.

Aujourd'hui, le quelque jours est devenu quelques semaines et les Networks ont emboîté le pas. Tout cela dans une optique d'assurer au mieux le marketing de lancement dans un contexte ultra concurrentiel.

And The Award For Best Social Media Extensions Goes To MTV

And The Award For Best Social Media Extensions Goes To MTV | The second age of TV | Scoop.it

The word “TV” still dominates its name and identity, but beginning today, MTV will introduce a variety of so-called “second screen” experiences leading up to and running through its annual “MTV Movie Awards” on June 3 that may cause some users, er viewers, to question which screen is their dominant one. Not surprisingly, social media will be at the core of the new digital screen experiences, including a new movie awards category, dubbed “Real Hero,” that will be chosen dynamically in real-time by fans tweeting in to special Twitter hashtags.

Don't kill already this social tv (blue) ocean!

Don't kill already this social tv (blue) ocean! | The second age of TV | Scoop.it
There are advantages and disadvantages of being one of the earlier companies in a very early market. While new companies get to watch, observe, and create their own insights based on product features incumbents develop, we get to constantly introspect on “what has worked” based on real data, real feedback, and being out in the market talking to partners.

The second screen space is going to be a multi-billion dollar market. Just last week, Tim Cook announced that 67M iPads were sold in less than two years. It took more than 24 years to sell that many Macs. With the growing trend of second screen activity (i.e. using tablets while you watch TV), there is bound to be major disruption in the TV industry.

The Hybrid Media Challenge - Broadcasters vs the Force

The Hybrid Media Challenge - Broadcasters vs the Force | The second age of TV | Scoop.it

Also like most big media organisations the ABC is a mirror of the external larger world itself. There are silo’s, politics, technical differences across the divisions, resource scarcity, diluted budgets and linear controllers / commissioners who all need to be sold on the importance of Multi Platform and the potential of different types of services. But that means a good part of my role inside the ABC is very similar to my BBC Senior Dev Producer role, to evangelise but also implement new services. That means I am exposed to the key challenges in terms of merging or hybridising broadcast and on-demand TV with some of the key driving forces outside a broadcasters world. Without drilling down into the detail (or breaking any confidentiality!) the top level challenges for all traditionally one-way media organisations is:

Is Facebook Good For TV?

Is Facebook Good For TV? | The second age of TV | Scoop.it
Zuckerberg told potential investors that the company’s top priorities will be to improve the Facebook mobile experience–its members now average seven hours a month checking updates on their smart phones–and to develop a model for mobile advertising so each of us sees only the type of ads for which we’ve expressed a preference.

 

But Zuckerberg also mentioned another big Facebook frontier, one that could be just as big a part of our daily lives. It’s what’s become known as social TV–basically using social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter, to connect people viewing TV shows, even though they’re watching on different screens in different zip codes, sometimes on different continents.

Best (and worst) social TV moments of the Oscars

Best (and worst) social TV moments of the Oscars | The second age of TV | Scoop.it

This year’s Academy Awards on ABC was infused with social media and second-screen experiences, top to bottom. So much so, we were juggling apps and devices — three different hosted live streams during the red carpet show — which was a bit out of control. While the show didn’t offer many (if any) smashing viral moments, there were some terrific second-screen developments and a few memorable social media tidbits.
