The iTV Doctor Is In: Superheroes of the Second Screen--Chapter 1: zeebox

Dear Readers:

We've been watching with interest the developments in the second-screen space. Consolidation and re-invention have generated the most headlines in 2013; growth and revenue somewhat less so. It's a tough space, and I dare say that all the second-screen providers are consulting their Ouija boards to map out the next few years.

Sorry Samsung, LG, et. al. – hotels won’t buy your 4K & Smart TVs – unless you change the game

When mentioning a hotel stay to our friends (or on TripAdvisor), we often talk about how they made us feel.  The attention to detail, the quality of the sheets on the bed, the way they anticipated our needs and seem to know our name whenever we call room service at 3 am.  One thing we don’t often talk about is the quality of the TV in our rooms.

As the titans of the CE industry that make and sell the next generation of connected/smart TV and 4K (Ultra HD) displays will eventually find out, this lack of conversation isn’t going to change for the foreseeable future. (But it should/ could – more on that later).

Will on Wednesdays: Get Off Your Ads and Mobilize! - Part 3: The Seismic Shifts that Will Need to Take Place to Make TV-to-Mobile Ad/Marketing Experiences Commonplace

By Will Kreth

In our first two articles, we looked at the leaders in the race to connect TV ad impressions to mobile marketing experiences (Apple, Google, Samsung and Amazon). In our third and final installment, we've talked to industry experts on how they see this movie playing out.

Will on Wednesdays: Get Off Your Ads and Mobilize! - Part 2: Multi-Screen Orchestration Tunes Up

Moving from an Era of "What's in Your Wallet?"  to "Who's Your Mobile Wallet?"

In our last installment, we looked at how Apple, with its vertically integrated products, identity architecture and cloud stack, may very well be the first company to bridge the TV advertising to mobile retail experience divide. From Apple TV to Passbook, we anticipate the company will opportunistically optimize their iAds platform -- using the awareness-generating power of TV ad impressions to both mobilize and shift branded experiences to the iPhone in as few clicks as possible.
