IN THE NEWS

HBO gave a series order for a weekly late night show from SNL writer Sam Jay and Insecure producer Prentice Penny. The series will debut in 2021, with Jay tackling topics including race politics, sexual identity, religion and more. “Sam is fiercely funny, provocative, and a complete original,” said Nina Rosenstein, EVP, HBO Programming. “Her comedy seamlessly glides between vulnerability and grit, and she always makes you see the world in a whole new way.”

Disney+ is diving into social viewing with the rollout of GroupWatch, which allows up to seven subscribers to sync movies and shows. While GroupWatch does not offer texting, users can respond to content with emojis, and each user can pause, play, rewind or fast forward for the group. “Storytelling comes alive when you’re able to share and enjoy it with others, and in this moment when many are still apart from their friends and family, GroupWatch offers a way to safely connect virtually by co-viewing your favorite Disney+ stories with your favorite people from the comfort of your living room,” said Jerrell B Jimerson, SVP Product Management for Disney+. The feature is available on almost all connected platforms where the service can be viewed. Disney-owned Hulu launched Hulu Watch Party in June, and Amazon Prime Video added a co-watching feature in June.

Twenty-six percent of Americans say they use YouTube as a source for news, according to a new Pew Research Center study. YouTube news consumers said they at least sometimes turn to news organizations as well as independent channels for news, and while most say YouTube is not their primary news source, most say it is an important way to stay informed. The platform’s news viewers are split between primarily looking for opinions and commentary (51%) and mostly seeking information and facts (or “straight” reporting; 48%).

Good news for news: Advertising in news is brand safe, increases trust and drives consumers to take action, according to a new report from IAB in collaboration with Magid Research. Key findings in “The News Trust Halo: How Advertising in News Benefits Brands” include:
Consumers like brands more when they advertise in the news. They find brands:
· 49% relevant to them
· 47% customer-focused
· 46% high quality
As a result of seeing a brand advertising on their favorite news outlets:
· 45% of consumers are more likely to visit the brand’s website
· 43% would consider buying from the brand
· 39% are comfortable recommending the brand
“Never has trusted news been more important in our society. Over the past year we have seen significant growth in news consumption as we increasingly rely on news to keep us safe, connected, and informed,” said David Cohen, CEO, IAB. “The IAB study sought to understand the brand impact of advertising in the news. While historically some brands have avoided news due to negative association concerns, the study found that those concerns were unfounded.”

A joint statement from Gabrielle Union and NBC Entertainment said they have reached an “amicable resolution” to Union’s allegations of a toxic workplace culture during her season as a judge on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. “NBC Entertainment appreciates the important concerns raised by Gabrielle Union and remains committed to ensuring an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds can be treated with respect,” said the statement. Since Union’s complaint was filed in June, NBC Entertainment President Paul Telegdy was let go amid a corporate restructuring and shortly after a Hollywood Reporter investigation found he fostered a toxic work culture.

TECH TALK

ironSource Aura, the engagement platform for mobile carriers and OEMs, announced a new customer engagement solution for Pay TV providers. Aura’s solution allows media companies to dynamically enhance their existing Android TV set top boxes, and then bridge their TV and mobile technology to reach users across all of their screens. The solution empowers users to customize their TVs with their preferred content and services during the initial setup process, and throughout the lifetime of their Pay TV subscription. “As leading telcos expand 5G, they’ll become serious players in the home internet space, and are likely to bundle the service with their paid TV and mobile connectivity services,” said Sagi Benbasat, GM Enterprise Solutions, ironSource. “Our mission is to empower our telco partners with a cross-platform solution for these services, where they can engage with a customer across all of their screens. What’s more, they’ll be able to connect the consumer’s big screen with their mobile device – be it Android or iOS – for cross screen engagement and a richer user experience.”

FreeWheel and FastPay announced a partnership that extends FastPay’s media payments platform to users of FreeWheel’s Strata platform. This partnership provides the 1100+ agencies using the Strata platform with options to automate and streamline their media payment processes. “Financial accountability and business continuity have always been critical for agencies and media sellers, but this is especially true in 2020 as many companies adapt to tighter budgets and new work styles,” said Mark McKee, Chief Revenue Officer, FreeWheel. “FastPay was a natural partner for us. Working together, we are helping the industry adopt more modern financial processes that offer not only increased efficiency, but also greater security and accessibility.”

DOOH advertising company Accretive Media announced the launch of Accretive Connect, a solution enabling sequential messaging between programmatic DOOH and CTV advertising. “Accretive Connect will allow brands to intelligently display their messaging across big beautiful DOOH screens and then use format sequencing to amplify that same message to those same consumers with sight, sound and motion in the comfort of their own homes on another large, emotive screen – the connected television,” said Craig Benner, Founder and CEO of Accretive Media.

Makers of apps in Google Play Store will no longer be able to circumvent its payment system to avoid paying the 30% revenue-sharing fee for in-app purchases. “We’ve always required developers who distribute their apps on Play to use Google Play’s billing system if they offer in-app purchases of digital goods, and pay a service fee from a percentage of the purchase,” wrote Sameer Samat, VP of Product Management for Google, in a blog post. “To be clear, this policy is only applicable to less than 3% of developers with apps on Google Play. We only collect a service fee if the developer charges users to download their app or they sell in-app digital items, and we think that is fair. Not only does this approach allow us to continuously reinvest in the platform, this business model aligns our success directly with the success of developers.” Companies have until September 30, 2021 to comply.
