IN THE NEWS

With 83% of consumers report watching content on streaming platforms, AVODs are on the rise. In a survey from Piplsay, 50% of respondents reported switching from ad-free streaming services to ad supported streaming services – and most are not finding ads too disruptive. Among those with ad supported service, 49% said they were very satisfied, 41% said somewhat satisfied and 10% reported not being satisfied.

What’s the buzz at the annual Allen & Co. conference in Sun Valley? “The talk of the week is going to be that the industry is going to start consolidating a little bit more,” said Discovery CEO David Zaslav, set to oversee a Discovery/WarnerMedia merger. “We’re not done yet.” Other TV titans on hand at the annual media and tech event are Walt Disney Co. Executive Chairman Bob Iger and CEO Bob Chapek, Netflix co-CEOs Reed Hastings and Ted Sarandos, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, and NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell. ViacomCBS President and CEO Bob Bakish, who last attended the conference in 2017 will again be a no-show, but ViacomCBS chair Shari Redstone is on the scene.

NBCUniversal introduced new Global Content Innovations for brands across its global One Platform. Innovations include Diverse Storytellers, providing a platform for diverse artists, storytellers and content creators; CEO Series, featuring twelve CEOs who redefine what it means to be a leader; #ShesMy, a short form set of content pieces to help amplify the mission of non-profit organizations dedicated to lifting women up; and Story Pirates, dedicated to helping children hone their storytelling craft. “NBCUniversal not only brings marketers into the stories and IP that consumers crave, but gives them the ability to co-create that content themselves,” said Josh Feldman, CMO, NBCUniversal Advertising and Partnerships. “We strategically evolved our commitment to commercial innovation to go beyond ad loads and formats to include content opportunities that put marketers in the director seat.”

Most YouTube videos that viewers regretted watching had actually been recommended by the platform, according to a report from Mozilla Foundation’s “RegretsReporter” browser extension. Based on Regret reports submitted between July 2020 and May 2021, 71% of videos had been recommended to users, and recommended videos were 40% more likely to be regretted than those users searched for. “Our research suggests that the corporate policies and practices of YouTube, including the design and operation of their recommendation algorithms, is at least partially responsible for the regrettable experiences that our volunteers had on the platform,” said Mozilla in its report. “We believe our research has revealed is only the tip of the iceberg, and that each of these findings deserves and requires further scrutiny.”

Publicis Media has launched a new initiative, the Once & For All Coalition, to boost representation of underserved and ethnically diverse suppliers. Under the plan, Publicis Media and client participants will commit to increasing investment in minority owned and targeted media, as well as helping fund research, measurement, content creation and infrastructure solutions. Publicis Media will also invest $25 million in diverse content creation via its APX Content Ventures offering. “True equity requires sustainability and our goal with the Once & For All Coalition is to take a long-term approach, consistent with the population change and fast-rising majority,” said Lisa Torres, President, Cultural Quotient, Publicis Media.

Netflix renewed “The Standups” for season three, set to tape live in NYC this summer.

ABC will air corporate sib ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” game of the week on August 8, as the Chicago Cubs host the first-place White Sox. The game will also stream on the ESPN app and air on ESPN Deportes.

TEGNA Inc.’s VERIFY brand, aimed at helping the public distinguish between true and false information, introduced hosts Gabe Cohen, Airane Datil and Brandon Lewis, who will write stories and produce content across multiple platforms. The VERIFY team, with help from questions submitted viewers, tracks the spread of stories or claims that need clarification or correction.

Discovery’s Shark Week and Nat Geo’s Shark Fest drive substantial tune-in from viewers who had not watched the networks in the prior 30 days. According to LG Ads, which analyzes tune-in from 20 million HHS, both Discovery Channel and National Geographic use their events to promote other on-network programming, and one-third of new viewers tune in to each network during the 30 days after the shark events, resulting in net new viewership of 13% for Discovery and 18% for Nat Geo.

Which brands are taking a bite out of Discovery’s Shark Week, returning for its 33rd year on Sunday, July 11? New and returning partners include Beneath the Waves, Oceana, Ocean Conservancy, Southwest Airlines, Wilson, Nautica, Casely, MeUndies, American Red Cross, Biossance, Pooch Perks, Great Clips, Ubisoft, The Paley Center for Media and Georgetown Cupcake. “Our marketing partnerships are an integral part of our annual Shark Week celebration,” said SVP of Marketing, Josh Kovolenko. “They extend our reach, allow our superfans to experience the brand in new ways and most important of all, benefit sharks and ocean conservation.”
