WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max has a launch date: Wednesday, May 27. “Consumers will quickly see that HBO Max is set apart by a foundation of loved brands built over decades but stitched together with a distinctive voice and product experience,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer, HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS, and truTV. “Our team has meticulously selected a world class library catalogue and collaborated with top creators across all genres to offer a monthly cadence of original series and movies that we will program and promote for cultural impact.” Launch day premieres include Anna Kendrick comedy Love Life; underground ballroom series Legendary; Craftopia, hosted by YouTube star LaurDIY; and kids series Looney Tunes and The Not Too Late Show with Elmo, among others, as well as Friends, South Park The Big Bang Theory and more.

Magnolia Network, scheduled to launch October 4, is delaying its debut due to production shutdowns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Right now, it’s important that we all continue to look out for one another by upholding the guidelines set forth by the experts, leaders and front-line heroes working tirelessly to get us all through this difficult time,” said Chip and Joanna Gaines, who are partnering with Discovery Inc. for the joint venture. “With this as our top priority, we’ve decided to delay Magnolia Network’s launch until we can safely resume production.” Still, a slate of eight new unscripted shows was announced: Bespoke Kitchens; Andrew Zimmern-hosted Family Dinner; Restoration Road; The Fieldhouse; Super Dad, starring Taylor Calmus; Home Work; The Lost Kitchen; and Inn the Works, about a lodge in California.

Discovery, Inc. will rebrand DIY Network as part of Magnolia Network’s linear launch – DIY Network is distributed to 50 million homes across the country, but currently available to approximately 75 million households as part of Free Preview offerings from some of Discovery Inc.’s video affiliates.

While Charter Communications has avoided furloughs and bucked the COVID-19-induced trend of industry pay cuts – giving wage increases instead – the company is facing criticism from employees for a policy that has thousands of workers stationed in offices and call centers.

Charter is considered an essential service because it keeps 29 million people connected.

TV ad sales could be down by $10 billion in the first half of 2020, projects eMarketer, due to the cancellation or postponement of live sports during the COVID-19 crisis. In the first half of last year, ad spend was $33.9 billion; this year the forecast is $24-$26.3 billion.

While warning in a new report that “this will get bumpy,” MoffattNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson said the hit the economy is taking from the pandemic won’t necessarily prompt clients to cut agencies. “Especially given a dynamically changing marketplace, with the rise of OTT TV offerings, new digital ad platforms like Amazon, and changing regulations around consumer privacy and data, it may in fact be more efficient to outsource marketing functions to agencies especially if they are not core competencies for the client,” wrote Nathanson. “We do not anticipate clients will be itching to set up their own in-house teams and add more fixed costs to their operating models.”

During a time when in-person events have been cancelled, the adtech community is helping to preserve revenue for media owners using breakthrough approaches and solutions. Adtech providers are a group that lives on the cutting edge of innovation, which is why we are celebrating their platforms, campaigns, and strategies with the Cynopsis Adtech Awards.

The solution is based on a Smart TV data set representing over 80% of US market share.

Haystack TV has launched an interactive COVID-19 tracker map that finds news about the spread of the virus from local TV stations, and introduced a widget that gives users access to daily state-by-state data on confirmed cases and deaths. “Haystack TV is dedicated to making it easy to find updated information and improve accessibility to the breadth of our local TV news content,” said Haystack TV CEO and co-founder Daniel Barreto. “Now more than ever local news is critical and these features bring our users closer to the latest data and coverage from across the country.” Haystack launched a coronavirus streaming news channel earlier this year.

CBSN Chicago, the ninth of ViacomCBS’ 13 local direct-to-consumer streaming news services in major markets, has made its debut. CBSN Chicago features anchored programming and coverage of live breaking news events in the region. “Today marks the beginning of a terrific new chapter in CBS Chicago’s history,” said Derek Dalton, President and General Manager, WBBM-TV. “Based on the success of the other CBSN Local services that have previously launched, it is clear the demand for streaming news is strong and growing.”

Local news is more important now than ever. Jack Perry, CEO of Syncbak, offers five reasons why in the latest Cynsiders.

Are sports-less coronavirus lockdowns accelerating cord-cutting, as households stream TV to keep busy? According to a survey from the Trade Desk and YouGov, of households that pay for cable, 11% reported being likely to switch to streaming exclusively by the end of the year, up from the 3% predicted last year. “With only a quarter of young adults having any long-term interest in traditional cable TV, in a few years, we won’t be talking about linear or cable TV at all,” said The Trade Desk’s Chief Strategy Officer, Brian Stempeck. “It will all be online and streaming. For broadcasters and advertisers, it’s now all about how quickly they can pivot to where the eyeballs are moving and many of them are already investing heavily in order to succeed in a world of connected TV.”

TV measurement and analytics company 605 has made a strategic investment in AdScribe, a London and Dublin-based advertising technology, measurement and services business. 605 and AdScribe partnered to develop 605 PLATF0RM, a self-service, web-based application that reports TV viewership of programming and advertising by advanced, custom-defined audiences. “PLATF0RM has been a remarkable success for 605, and our strategic investment in the AdScribe business will allow us to develop new measurement solutions for our current clients and extend our reach into Europe,” said Kristin Dolan, CEO and founder of 605. “We are seeing tremendous momentum in our business – even amid this uncertain time – as television and video content consumption grows quickly and in new ways. Sophisticated measurement and analytics matter now more than ever.”
