Good morning, it’s Wednesday, September 14, 2011, and this is your first early morning digital briefing.  If you would like to read this or any other Cynopsis edition online, click here

More TV Everywhere news came from Cablevision, which inked a deal with the Turner Networks to offer full-length episodes of TBS, TNT, CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and truTV shows online and via iPads and iPhones to authenticated cable customers. The TV Everywhere content from the Turner Networks can be accessed via the Cablevision Optimum App. This latest pact underscores the growing efforts by cablers to roll out their TV Everywhere fare to keep multi-platform consumers from cutting the cord. The announcement follows Monday’s news that Turner would market TV Everywhere on its networks with a new ad campaign explaining how viewers can access their cable programming across other devices.

~ MULTIPLATFORM CONTENT NEWS ~

CBS‘s Big Brother finished the summer with an 18% increase in traffic to its Web site at CBS.com compared to the year before, and a 10% jump in live video subscribers as well. The number of Facebook fans doubled, while the number of Twitter followers rose by 2,753%.
 
Karmaloop TV launched the new site www.ReclaimYourTV.com as part of its social media campaign to introduce service providers to the network and its youth demographic in a push for traditional carriage and word of mouth.
 
Digital indie film distributor SnagFilms acquired the rights to Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, a Vuguru-produced documentary on the controversial military policy.

Adding to the spate of social ranking services is the newest entrant YouNow, a social platform that lets users broadcast live video with their web cams or mobile devices to be evaluated by fellow users with the chance to grow a social following, or be voted off the Web.

~ TECHNOLOGY DEALS, MERGERS AND SKIRMISHES ~

Motorola Mobility made a strategic investment of an undisclosed sum of cash in video platform provider Ooyala, which powers video and analytics across the Web, mobile devices and connected TVs. The partnership is designed to help deliver video content to multiplatform devices. Ooyala delivers more than one billion streams to over 100 million consumers per month. Just last month Google announced plans to acquire Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion.
 
Video encoding service Encoding.com has paired up with New York ad agency Firstborn to handle the technical delivery of its new iPhone/iPad app for SoBe. Encoding.com said with its tools, Firstborn was able to deliver the project to Sobe in three weeks instead of three months, which was the original projection.

~ TRENDS, RESEARCH, ETC.  ~

Neither the Republican Presidential Debate nor President Obama’s address to the nation could beat out MTV’s Jersey Shore in social media currency, according to SocialGuide. The reality show topped social media ranking for the week ending Sept. 11 with more uniques, even though the debate snagged more mentions.

Google continues to lead the way in searches with 64.8% of the search market in August, followed by Yahoo at 16.3%, then Microsoft’s sites at 14.7%, according to comScore.

Fueled by viewers’ thirst for economic news, CNBC.com logged its best August ever in uniques with 7.4 million, a 44% rise over last year, and best month ever in page views with 437 million, a 58% bump. On mobile phones, CBS also set records in uniques and page views with 3.3 million uniques, more than double a year ago.

~ GADGETS & APPS ~

News technology service Inergize Digital is jumping into the deals business with plans to launch a mobile app that delivers local coupons, discounts and deals to iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android mobile digital devices. The company’s local media partners can use the apps to tap into the deals business with their news brands.

~ EXECUTIVE MOVES ~

Web site DailyCandy hired SuChin Pak to serve as a daily correspondent. She previously reported on-air at MTV.

Mobile advertising firm Millennial Media landed Isaac Babbs as SVP/Business Development. Babbs joins from Qualcomm.
