Cynopsis: DIGITAL
07.31.13

Good morning. It’s Wednesday, July 31, 2013, and this is your first early morning digital briefing.

CONTENT EVERYWHERE

Viacom continues to be upset that video from many of its shows, such as Comedy Central’s Daily Show, can easily be found on YouTube without their permission, so Viacom wants a new judge on the case. The Hollywood Reporter has dug up documents filed Friday that ask the Second Circuit Court of Appeals to assign a new judge to check out Viacom’s suit against YouTube, a suit that has been twice dismissed by the court system already over the last seven years. “Given the protracted nature of this litigation and the evident firmness of the district court’s erroneous views regarding the [Digital Millennium Copyright Act], this Court should exercise its discretion to remand the case to a different judge ‘to preserve the appearance of justice,'” Viacom states in the papers.
In Other Words: Viacom isn’t sitting back on this one. It appears it will continue to throw cash at this one and heaven help the Viacom employee who is discovered watching old Daily Shows episodes on YouTube.

A+E Networks wants consumers to watch its programming anywhere and everywhere so it has now added Kindle Fire HD devices to its watch apps offerings. A&E, History, and Lifetime network apps are available on both the Amazon App store and Google Play. A+E already has apps available on iPad, iPhone, and Android.

Is your social media strategy up to par? Learn from the best! Join us on Aug. 14 in NY at the Cynopsis Sports Business Summit for our social media panel featuring Lockerdome’s Gabe Lozano, CSE’s John Mitchell, AEG’s Scott Carlis, Sports Illustrated’s Jim DeLorenzo and Michael Spirito from YES Network. The session will be moderated by Bloomberg’s Rob Shaw. Register at http://www.cynopsissportssummit.com

Political news show The Young Turks is about to lose its spot on cable channel Current TV, so what does it do? Launches a channel on Roku, of course. Apps for iOS and Android are also in the works. The content will be similar to what’s available on the show’s YouTube channel, part of the site’s paid-subscription program. Young Turks currently have fewer than 1,000 paid subscribers, according to VentureBeat, so the new channel may help to bring in some revenue. Roku, which has sold more than five million streaming players in the U.S., has also added a channel for Toon Goggles, which features ad-free on-demand content for kids.

ADVERTISING

Opera Mediaworks has released its second-quarter report on the state of mobile advertising and the first thing to jump out is that iOS is much more where the money is. Some findings from the study of a platform that serves more than 60 billion ad impressions each month are below:

  • iPhone generated 36.4% of revenue compared to Android’s 27.8%.
  • 3 out of every 4 dollars of all mobile transactions happen in the U.S.A.
  • Even though advertising spend tends to drop in January, mobile use continues because of consumers receiving new devices over the holidays.
  • Rich media in-app campaigns outperform banners and mobile web. Brand advertisers shifting their mobile ad dollars to rich media creative campaigns get an average click-through rate of 1.53%.
  • Sports was the No. 1 generator of revenue in the quarter, thanks to professional baseball. However, Music, Video & Media again received the highest volume of impressions at 22.4%.

In Other Words: People love music, but they’ll pay to watch their team or get info that will help them have some kind of sports bragging rights.

Fashion app Pose has been around for two and a half years, but the two million people that have used it are getting a new experience: one with ads. The app started its second in-stream ad campaign Monday, this one for Juicy Couture Fragrances. Its first ad ran last month with eBay Fashion. The ads appear within the poses that make up the majority of the app’s content. The company plans to offer targeting capabilities to advertisers in the future so that they could reach consumers who may have stored away images of competitor’s products or reach certain geographic areas.

YieldMetrics, which aims to bring more transparency to digital advertising, is rebranding to Adomic. The two-year-old company’s PathSource technology provides advertisers and their agencies with data to help them invest. Company founder Gabe Gottlieb said last week that 70% of the top 1,000 brands online are incorporating real-time buying into their media plans. He also noted, thought, that transparency concerns are keeping some advertisers from fully using RTB for branding versus lower funnel or transactional goals. “Adomic better describes our company and the energy that we bring to providing transparency to the display advertising space,” Gottlieb told Cynopsis. “YieldMetrics, while a great name, didn’t describe all of the value that we provide to publishers, agencies, brands and ad-tech providers.”

Ad-management company WideOrbit Inc. now has more than 2,500 stations and networks are operating on its advertising traffic software platforms. WideOrbit serves TV stations, radio stations, media networks, non-linear video, digital display and mobile.

MARKETING + METRICS

Most folks don’t use their mobile devices for TV viewing. According to a study from the Council for Research Excellence, mobile devices account for just 2% of all TV viewing. However, the group that the study calls “early adopters” and “opinion leaders” are far more active on mobile TV than that. Still, if TV execs want watchers to actually be paying attention to their content, they should hope they are watching on smartphones. Smartphone TV watchers were multitasking on other electronic devices while viewing only 14% of the time while tablet viewers were doing other things 27% of the time and those watching on computers were doing other things 31% of the time. The number actually goes up on regular old broadcast TVs with viewers multitasking 34% of the time. Another piece of data supporting smartphone viewership as the strongest is that 39% of those viewers looked up show information, posted about the show on social networks or engaged in some other kind of online activity relating to the TV programming. Meanwhile, those who actually watched the show on TV only had 21% of viewership do those things, lower than both tablet viewers (27%) or those that watched on computers (31%).
In Other Words: Focus your mobile efforts on smartphone users.

NEW PROGRAMMING + DEALS

UKF, the largest electronic dance music-focused network of channels on YouTube with 5.6 million subscribers, has partnered with next-generation media company Collective Digital Studio in order to help bolster UKF’s already strong content production as well as to secure brand deals that will help support independent musicians and record labels. Viewers should expect new music videos and interviews, among other things, to come out of the relationship.

For those who can’t wait for Halloween to get the blood flowing, there is a streaming-video service that’s with you: Hulu. Horror-movie news site Bloody Disgusting and production company The Collective have teamed up to offer free streaming horror films from now till October 31, including such classics as Yellow Brick Road, Exit Humanity, and Crawl. Why wait till October to freak yourself out when you can do it now for free?

For all those who love HBO’s Girls, another parody web series, LA Girls, is on its way. Set to premiere August 7, the five-episode first season features actresses Kylie Sparks and Tiffany Ariany, who also appeared in cult web series Squaresville. Sparks is also working on another parody series, The Walking Tedd, which combines The Walking Dead with Ted and will now be produced after reaching its Kickstarter goal.

EXEC MOVES

Mobile and social gaming company Cie Games has appointed Matt Nutt as vice president of business development and operations and Chong Ahn as executive producer. Nutt worked previously with Square Enix, Blizzard Entertainment, and Microsoft’s Expedia. Ahn also worked with Square Enix as well as Ubisoft’s Digital Publishing Group… Computational linguistics analytics company Persado has added four execs in the U.S.: CFO Matthew Novick; Lawrence Whittle, senior vice president of sales and business development; Xinyu Huang, vice president of engineering; and Leila Modarres, vice president of marketing.

DIGITAL SPOTLIGHT OF THE DAY

One of the most read (and reviled) pieces of fanfic, My Immortal, which took the Harry Potter series and infused it with vampires, poor spelling, goth teens, and a touch of Satanism, has been turned into a web series. Mirroring its written counterpart, the series is filled with some pretty bad writing and acting, but is kind of oddly fascinating at the same time.
