The iTV Doctor Is In! Solving the Social TV Space/Time Continuum

Dear Readers:

Television is changing, and it will never be the same again (how many times have we heard THAT?). But this time it might be real. By the end of the year we expect to see two or three major distributors offering some form of virtual MSO subscription service: Dish Network, with their ABC/Disney/ESPN package; Verizon, powered by Intel's OnCue platform; and one other--possibly Comcast.

Consumers will watch programming on basically anything with a flat glass screen, and they'll use cable, satellite, telco, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and many more. The mind boggles.

The iTV Doctor Is In! Heather Locklear's Social Media Prescience

Dear Readers:

As we enter 2014, the folks who are looking to increase viewership of their video content are finding the task is rapidly increasing in complexity and cost.

The studios and networks are stretching their budgets to create television programming that attracts and keeps the audience anytime, anywhere. And some of them are starting to realize that keeping the viewers CONNECTED to the content when they are AWAY from the television screen can go a long way towards bringing them back to the show.

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 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.
