Cynopsis: DIGITAL
01.29.14

Good morning. It’s Wednesday, January 29, 2014, and this is your first early morning digital briefing.

DIGITAL DOINGS AT NATPE

YouTube superstar Grace “It’s Grace” Helbig was excited to speak at NATPE on Tuesday, thrilled about her upcoming movie (Camp Takota, from Michael Goldfine’s RockStream Studios) – and, as someone who’s had control over the content she’s produced in the past, a little nervous about a potential variety/talk show (“We’re sculpting it”) on E! But not too nervous. “There is trepidation,” Helbig allows, “but I see it as a way to show new content on a different platform. E! really understands the vibe and the personality. It’s like It’s Grace – but with a budget.” Helbig is also working on an interview video podcast with YouTube, tentatively called “Not too Deep.”

“The market’s going well,” said YuMe‘s Vamshi Sriperumbudur, from the shade of a Fontainebleau cabana at NATPE. The VP of platform marketing for the digital video brand company, one of many digital companies taking a seat at the NATPE table, pointed to research showing that second and third screens can strengthen, not diminish, the impact of TV advertising, explaining, “The impact of a brand is higher when it is viewed on multiple screens, versus seeing it multiple times on television.”

NEW PROGRAMMING + DEALS

WWE Networks will officially go completely digital on Feb. 24, launching live on every device connected to the web. Adweek reports the network is the first to make the total transition from cable TV to over-the-top, and will charging $9.99 per subscription every month. Linear shows Raw, Main Event and Smackdown will continue to air on the USA Network, Ion and Syfy.

Apple TV is debuting its first branded digital channel, Red Bull TV, which will provide action-sports coverage distributed by the energy drink company Red Bull. Red Bull TV originally launched in 2010, and is also available online, on Apple and Android apps, Google Chromecast, Samsung Smart TVs, and Red Bull’s YouTube channel.
