IN THE NEWS

TNT and TBS will pivot to more unscripted content, AT&T COO and WarnerMedia Chairman John Stankey told investors on Wednesday. General entertainment content “will show up on HBO Max going forward,” said Stankey, while the cable nets will be more focused on sports and programming that sparks “water cooler” conversation. HBO Max will offer “something for everyone in the family,” said Stankey, with the highest-quality premium SVOD in the market delivering “a higher percentage of culturally relevant offerings.”

WarnerMedia’s revenues slipped 3% in the fourth quarter, to $8.9 billion, said AT&T in its earnings release, in part due to the loss of content license dollars ahead of HBO Max’s launch. “Without the impact of foreign exchange pressures and HBO Max investments in the form of foregone WarnerMedia content licensing revenues, consolidated revenues would have increased in both the fourth quarter and the full year,” said the company.

AT&T reported a loss of 945,000 premium video subscribers from DirecTV and U-Verse, and 219,000 from AT&T Now in the quarter, but the February launch of AT&T TV will change the video loss trend, said Stankey. “As we move through this year and we start shifting to AT&T TV, our gross add performance starts to get much stronger,” the COO told analysts. “When you’re able to put AT&T TV, a software-based product with fiber, it’s a much more natural combination than a satellite dish and fiber. And so, as we start to roll out AT&T TV now in markets and we move in, we’re going to see much stronger performance on the fiber side.”

There has been talk at NBC News about adding a fifth hour to Today, according to Variety. While there “are no imminent plans” for the move, said NBC News President Noah Oppenheim in an interview, if it happened, the show would likely add an hour at the end of the 7a-11a block rather than at the beginning.

SAG-AFTRA outlined new guidelines for “intimacy coordinators” who oversee sex scenes in films and TV shows, to address the problem of sexual harassment on sets. “This is a home run for our members and the entire industry,” said David White, the union’s national executive director. “Having intimacy coordinators on sets where simulated sex and other forms of intimacy are present better protects SAG-AFTRA members and all other professionals involved in such scenes.”

Bloomberg Television is now available to Verizon Fios TV customers, giving viewers in cities across the East Coast access to Bloomberg TV’s global business and finance news, analysis and commentary on channel 605.

Terry Bradshaw scored a reality show. E! greenlit The Bradshaw Bunch (wt), starring the NFL legend, his wife and three daughters. “I thought winning four Super Bowls was hard, but it’s nothing compared to having three girls,” said Bradshaw. Comedic docu-series is slated to launch this summer.

NBC ordered a pilot for Langdon, a drama based on Dan Brown bestseller The Lost Sympbol. Project comes from Imagine Television, CBS TV Studios and Universal Television.

Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple’s Iron Ocean Productions inked a first-look deal with Paramount Television Studios. “Iron Ocean’s commitment to authenticity in their storytelling and ability to attract top-notch talent is something we’re very excited about,” said Nicole Clemens, President of Paramount Television Studios. The deal is for scripted TV projects.

Insight TV Studios, the newly launched production and content sales division of Insight TV, has formed a co-production partnership with Webedia, a digital and influencer-focused agency based in France, and its production entity X-Treme Video. The first co-production under the new partnership is Full Circle, scheduled to premiere on Insight TV in Spring 2020.

3 Ball Entertainment is expanding its business with the formation of 3BMG, a new parent company. 3BMG’s primary role is to incubate, foster and support the growth and vision of established and emerging producers, who will continue to operate as owners of their own companies. “With 3BMG, we saw a chance to create real opportunity for a wide range of talented producers that want to stay independent but not get crushed by the intensity of today’s business demands,” said CEO Ross Weintraub. “Our goal is to let creatives do what they do best while maintaining skin in the game; that’s the part of our model we see as especially advantageous.”

TECH TALK

Microsoft announced a $40 million program, AI for Health. The program aims to accelerate medical research; increase understanding of mortality and longevity; and reduce health inequity. AI for Health “is underpinned with a strong foundation of privacy, security, and ethics, and was developed in collaboration with leading health experts who are driving important medical initiatives,” wrote Microsoft President Brad Smith in a blog post. “Through AI for Health, we will support specific nonprofits and academic collaboration with Microsoft’s leading data scientists, access to best-in-class AI tools and cloud computing, and select cash grants.”

Roku is launching a software update that gives its line of Roku Smart Soundbars the ability to offer surround sound when paired with Roku TV Wireless Speakers. “We want to simplify home theater the same way we simplified streaming and we’re taking a big step towards that vision by expanding our Roku Smart Soundbars to support surround sound capabilities,” said Mark Ely, VP, Retail Product Strategy at Roku. “We want customers to be able to expand their system over time without having to spend a lot of money or run wires throughout the home.” Roku Wireless Surround Speakers will be available at Walmart.com and in stores for $149 next month.

Facebook 4Q19 revenue was $21.08 billion, beating Wall Street expectations of $20.8 billion, but shares slid 7% in after hours trading after the company reported a narrowing operating margin. Daily active users hit 1.66 billion in December, up 9% year-over-year, while monthly active users rose 8%, to 2.5 billion. “We had a good quarter and a strong end to the year as our community and business continue to grow,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “We remain focused on building services that help people stay connected to those they care about.”

STREAMING SNIPPETS

Mobile video viewing in India is growing fast, according a new study from software company Penthera, but almost half of viewers experience a delay of 5 seconds or more after they hit the play button. While 88% of users in India stream mobile video at least weekly, 93% say they experience streaming frustrations when they watch, including the video taking too long to start, the video re-buffering, and the advertisements being annoying. Eighty percent say they expect a service to offer downloading capabilities and 84% would pay extra for the feature. “While the competition for eyes in India is intense, OTT providers can position themselves at the top of the pack by providing a user friendly feature such as mobile downloading,” says the report. “Even better, offering download functionality to their viewers can pay for itself in monetized ads, increased subscription costs, and a decrease of churn.”

Netflix’s The Witcher and Disney+’s The Mandalorian top the list of streaming debuts for 4Q19, but Apple TV+ held six of the top ten spots, reports Parrot Analytics. Apple TV+ Originals delivered strong audience demand, with its sixth best-performing debut series, The Morning Show, showing 16.5x more demand over its 30 day premiere period than the average TV series with US audiences. For more, go here.

Netflix is reportedly planning to tweak its marketing strategy to include more marketing of its brand, in addition to individual titles, according to the Hollywood Reporter, a change that could result in at least 15 layoffs. The streamer employs about 6900 people.

OTT revenue will top $200 billion by 2024, projects ABI Research, boosted by new streaming services, aggressive pricing and packaging and continued expansion. And the shift to OTT will create opportunities for the traditional pay-TV business. “Cord-cutting is often regarded as a consequence of expanding OTT consumption, but the market dynamics are more complex, particularly when one considers how the pay-TV industry has embraced OTT as a complement and value-additive, rather than strict competition,” said Michael Inouye, Principal Analyst at ABI Research. “Over time, we expect the traditional pay-TV offer to continue to evolve and become indistinguishable from a pure OTT package of services.”

ADVERTISING

IPG Mediabrands is the first agency client to subscribe to the Nielsen Podcast Buyer Listening service. IPG agencies Universal McCann, Initiative, ID Media, Cadreon, Brand Programming Network, Orion, MAGNA and Healix will have access to podcast insights for planning and buying. “IPG Mediabrands is redefining how media, technology and data power our client’s marketing in today’s dynamic marketplace,” said Brian Hughes, EVP of Audience Intelligence and Strategy at MAGNA. “We are excited about the value that this data will provide in servicing all of the agencies with the insights and intelligence paramount for the success of monetization opportunities. This is beneficial to us, and the industry as a whole, as the rapidly growing podcast industry is requiring meaningful data to make sense of listenership.”

The CW, Tastemade, AccuWeather and Microsoft Advertising
have joined Xandr’s Community marketplace. “Community creates a relevant advertising experience for consumers, and a welcoming environment for marketers and publishers,” said Brian Lesser, CEO of Xandr. Community launched in May, with video inventory from AT&T Watch TV, DirecTV, WarnerMedia, Vice, Hearst Magazines, Newsy, Philo, Tubi and Xumo.

Watching sports at home is the most preferred viewing location for seven out of ten sports fans, according to a new study conducted by VAB and Dynata that explores in- and out-of-home sports viewing experiences.
Highlights of the study include:
· 92% of all sports fans enjoy viewing at home because TV provides a front seat to any game watched.
· Women are more likely than men to feel a personal connection to their favorite teams (59% vs. 51%).
· Seven out of 10 avid fans (73%) have bought a bigger TV screen just to have a better sports viewing experience.
· Avid sports fans are 40% more likely to have purchased a product advertised while watching sports on TV than a product or service seen advertised within a stadium or arena.
· 68% of avid sports fans say watching “off-the-field” coverage (including live interviews, highlights, etc.) is important to their viewing experience.

GOING GLOBAL

The BBC announced it plans to lay off 450 staffers in its news division in an effort to save $104 million by March 2022. The BBC will pool resources and journalists will appear on different platforms. “We need to reshape BBC News for the next decade in a way which saves substantial amounts of money,” said Fran Unsworth, head of news and current affairs. “We are spending too much of our resources on traditional linear broadcasting and not enough on digital.”
