IN THE NEWS

After 26 years as President and CEO of AMC Networks, Josh Sapan is transitioning to the role of Executive Vice Chairman. Matthew Blank, former Chairman and CEO of Showtime Networks, will serve as interim CEO while the company conducts a search for Sapan’s replacement. “There has perhaps been no more exciting time for the company than right now,” said Sapan. “I look forward to continuing to work with the outstanding team at AMC Networks, as well as Matt, my great colleague and friend, to focus on how we maximize our unique content to accelerate our streaming goals.”

Rachel Maddow’s new contract with NBCUniversal calls for her to continue to host “The Rachel Maddow Show” weeknights for now, but at some point next year the show will shift to weekly, according to CNN sources. A change would allow Maddow to focus on other projects in the NBCUniverse.

Sony’s movies will be seen first in theaters, said Greenstein, adding, “Movie theaters and the theatrical experience will triumph.” Making a surprise appearance at the event, Tom Rothman, Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Group, seconded the motion. “You remember Bill Clinton and ‘it’s the economy, stupid?’ It’s the window, stupid!” he said. “We’re not too bright out in Hollywood but we’ll figure it out.”

Naked’s “Snowflake Mountain” takes “a bunch of clueless kidults” to a survival retreat, where they realize how pampered their lives have been. Dancing competition “Dance Monsters,” from Lime Pictures, uses the power of VFX to energize the action. And in dating series “Dated and Related,” from Great Scott Media and Main Event Media, siblings help each other search for “the one.”

CBS is developing “The Porch,” a comedy starring and exec produced by Jaime Pressly (“Mom”), from Kapital Entertainment and CBS Studios. The series centers on a divorced woman who returns to a home she couldn’t wait to leave to bury a mother she couldn’t stand.

The newest selection for the Paley Center for Media 2021 programs, Paley Front Row presented by Citi: “Never Have I Ever,” offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Netflix series. Among those on hand will be creator Mindy Kaling.

STREAMING

The first half of 2021 saw a shift in how people watch video, with the growth of CTV viewership and the launch of new streaming platforms offering more quality programming, according to FreeWheel’s latest Video Marketplace Report. During this period, ad views continued to increase 50% year over year, driven by the increase in streaming. Streaming services accounted for 45% of recorded ad views, greater than TV Everywhere, Set-Top Box Video on Demand and Virtual MVPDs as a distribution platform. Connected TV accounts for 60% of total ad views, with Roku and Fire TV devices continuing to lead with 43% and 26% of CTV views, respectively.

“Outside of traditional linear TV, streaming services have grown exponentially in the 18 months, boosted by the pandemic’s effects of more time spent at home,” James Rothwell, VP of Marketing, Comcast Advertising, tells Cynopsis. “This significant growth is illustrated by both the 50% annual growth we saw in ad views on our platform as well as the fact that streaming services now make up almost half of the impressions we serve on behalf of our programmer and operator clients.”

VIZIO announced it has successfully closed its 2022 upfront negotiations, topping $100 million in brand and agency commitments, a fourfold increase over 2021. “We’ve developed an advertising business model that is unique in the industry,” said Mike O’Donnell, Chief Revenue Officer of VIZIO’s Platform Business. “We’re providing agencies with access to premium CTV inventory, the ability to target and measure with precision and access to insights that can inform their investment strategies for all linear and CTV.” VIZIO noted its upfront success is supplemented by its growing direct advertising business, which in the last year has doubled participating unique brands and tripled average revenue per advertiser.

DirecTV’s offer of a free HBO Max trial has been cut from one year to three months. “Across DirecTV our premium trial periods are now consistent for three months and this move provides a more predictable experience for customers. We will keep assessing and adjusting our offers to give our customers more choice and control over any premium service they wish,” said a DirecTV spokesperson.

Documentary streaming platform Documentary+ is now available on XUMO, marking its entrance into the AVOD space. The new channel features curated content from Documentary+’s collection of nonfiction films and series.

Africanews is the latest addition to Haystack News’ on-demand world news providers, as a result of an expanded content distribution agreement with the Euronews group. “Adding Africanews to our growing content roster reflects Haystack News commitment to seek out valuable new content partnerships to fuel our growth and add value for our viewers,” said Daniel Barreto, Co-Founder and CEO at Haystack TV.

Qwest TV has partnered with AVOD Local Now. “By presenting this music in a new format to new audiences, we’re striving to tear down the barriers that separate different cultures and limit our listening habits,” said Qwest TV CEO and Co-founder Reza Ackbaraly. “Partnering with an innovative company like Local Now solidifies Qwest TV’s position as the global leader working to ensure openness, curiosity, and inclusivity in our artistic and cultural consumption.”

TECH TALK

Viamedia’s video platform QTT announced the launch of QTT Marketplace, an open-platform destination for advertisers and agencies accustomed to digital platforms to access directly premium, curated local and national television inventory. “Buyers and sellers can now take advantage of their investments in data-driven audience planning tools by activating at scale through QTT’s seamless translation platform,” said John Piccone, President of QTT. “As a result, we now have an array of partners offering premium television inventory through demand- and sell-side platforms to connect them directly with traditional and new digital advertisers.” Initial television participants include A+ Networks, Fox, Reelz and Magnite.

Shopify and TikTok are partnering to allow consumers to buy products directly in the TikTok app. In a pilot program, Shopify merchants will be able to add a shopping tab to their profiles and link to products within TikTok posts.

TransUnion has launched TruAudience solutions, the culmination of 2.5 years building a suite of identity, addressability and data solutions, integrating the technology from three acquisitions TransUnion completed throughout 2019 and 2020, including Tru Optik, Signal Digital and TruSignal. “The marketing and advertising sector is on the precipice of reinvention with the demise of third-party cookies, the rise of privacy-centric solutions and the overarching need for brands to break down silos and communicate to consumers across channels — from connected TV and audio, to direct mail and linear TV,” said Matt Spiegel, EVP of Marketing Solutions and Head of Media and Entertainment Vertical, TransUnion. “TruAudience addresses all of these factors which is why industry leaders leverage the TruAudience identity graph as the backbone of their data and identity capabilities.”
