AT&T‘s DirecTV Now, the much-discussed OTT TV service that’s slated to debut on Monday, has landed a big fish. Fox Networks Group has extended its carriage deal across all of AT&T and DirecTV’s services, including DirecTV Now. The deal includes Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, FXM, FS 1, FS 2, Big Ten Network, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, FX, FXX, and eighteen Fox regional sports nets. CBS is now the only major broadcaster that hasn’t yet signed on for the service.
BuzzFeed‘s most prominent investor apparently wasn’t done investing. NBCUniversal announced that it has poured another $200 million into the digital media company, identical to the amount it invested last year. Along with the funding, the companies say they will expand their sales/advertising partnership. Specifically, they’ll work together on NBCU‘s Content Studio, a short-form digital media unit geared toward advertisers. And NBCU will also sell BuzzFeed’s ad inventory. The companies say that they’ll collaborate on creating "new digital consumer experiences" for NBCUniversal’s premium content.

Donald Trump‘s shocking victory is causing a whole lot of soul-searching among advertisers, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal‘s Alexandra Bruell and Suzanne Vranica. The meat of it: Agency figures are suddenly wondering whether they’ve been hopelessly out of touch with the rural, "elite-distrusting" voters who punched The Donald’s ticket to the White House. For decades, advertisers have relied on aspirational images of urban, upscale living. But is that the wisest approach? "Some marketers, concerned that data isn’t telling them everything they need to know, are considering increasing their use of personal interviews in research," write Bruell and Vranica. "Meanwhile, some ad agencies are looking to hire more people from rural areas as they rethink the popular use of aspirational messaging showcasing a ritzy life on the two metropolitan coasts." Check out the article here.
PushSpring, an app-based mobile audience targeting platform, announced a partnership with Cuebiq, a company specializing in location intelligence. According to the companies, the new partnership will bring Cubeiq’s functionality to PushSpring’s platform, enabling marketers to make use of "app-graph" data and location data via Audience Console, PushSpring‘s self-serve targeting platform. "This is the first time location and app graph data can be easily accessed, at scale, to create the most relevant custom audiences for marketers," said Matt Wong, PushSpring’s VP of Sales, in a statement.
Spectacles, Snapchat‘s smart glasses for recording and sharing video, have come to New York City. The company started rolling out its new hardware earlier this month, placing a Spectacles vending machine near its headquarters in Venice, California. One of those vending machines now sits in a storefront shop at 5 East 59th Street, near the corner of Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. Beware — the line will likely be long. Also, you’ll have to shell out $130.
ABC is thinking about launching a 24-hour digital news channel, according to a report from The New York Post. The (anonymously-sourced) article states that ABC New head James Goldston is overseeing the effort. If the channel does become a reality, it won’t launch before next year, according to the report.
Likes its parent company, Facebook‘s Instagram is now in the live video business. The Instagram app now allows users to live-stream video (in select markets.) The live video feature will be a part of Instagram Stories, the Snapchat-inspired feature that launched in August. Unlike Facebook Live and Twitter‘s Periscope, Instagram’s live videos will permanently disappear after a stream ends. And in another bit of Snapchat-like functionality, Instagram has also debuted a new feature that enables users to share private photos that disappear after they’re viewed.
