What will 2017 bring to the world of Television!

First of all, let me wish you a peaceful and happy New Year!

2016 has been a great year for us with the introduction of the 4-screen ratings of programmes in France becoming available to the market at the end of September last year.

Just prior to this news we announced our new collaboration with TAPE Consultancy to develop synergies between their respective areas of programme expertise. It will reinforce their mutual expertise and offer the TV industry professionals – studios, channels, rights holders – a unique service for international programme and market analysis.

Other first-rate performances along with the biggest TV and online content trends of the fall season were revealed in our NOTA International Trends conference held in Paris on January 17th (see exclusive).

The start of the year marks the moment to look back at the past season but also forward to the upcoming challenges. In 2017, our motto will be to strengthen the client service, develop our added value and increase our clients’ user experience.

In order to reach these goals, we will:

  • Keep on enlarging our geographical coverage and by that get a better understanding of the global market
  • Enlarge the scope of the data by integrating, when they are available, 4-screen audience ratings for TV, PC, mobile and tablets  
  • Develop transversal reports and analysis on major subjects for the industry
  • Improve the user experience of our online services such as NOTA and MyEurodata TV which will move to an online interface at the end of the year
  • Strengthen our trends monitoring thanks our partnership with WIZDEO with the recent integration of web streaming audiences and YouTube channels’.
  • Produce more customised and unique insights thanks to our recent partnership with Tape Consultancy

Driven by partnerships with more than 200 flagships clients, these different initiatives will reinforce our specific positioning being the only TV & Video Market Intelligence company able to deliver services covering more than 100 territories in the world.

Best wishes,

Laurent Battais,
Eurodata TV Worldwide Senior Vice-President

4-Screen measurement in France: the first feedback and what’s to come next

4-screen ratings of programmes in France became available to the market at the end of September 2016. Could you please explain the background and main characteristics of this measurement?

In fact, the first stream of data was made available to the participating TV Channels in April 2016. This first service allowed them to get access to a daily basis on 4-screen TV Ratings, programme by programme, by screen type and type of viewing (Live, Replay, Time-shifted…). This service was then opened to all our Mediamat subscribers (the reference TV measurement service) at the end of September 2016.

This service was the first step of our 4-screen measurement. The second step is to provide, on a monthly basis, results at TV Channel level, with additional metrics and demographics (that are not currently reported in the programme level service). We already provided the first beta results of this service to the TV channels. This will be opened to all subscribers from May onwards.

To make these measurements a reality, we heavily relied on our single source and online panels as well as streaming census data. Médiamétrie through its subsidiary Médiamétrie//NetRatings has been providing the market with the online reference audience measurement data for over 15 years now. This experience and our online assets (three panels on all 3 screens as well as census data) was one of the key to our project. We have also used our single source panel co-owned with Google.

Concerning audience results, what feedback you can share since 4-screen ratings became available?

We can say that for some programmes and for some demographics, the usage of those new screens is key. In particular, for the younger populations, the mobile screens give them a direct access to the remote. The programmes targeted to the younger audience see a direct benefit of this. But other demographics also use those new screens. We see good results for Live sports and news and of course movies / fiction.

Overall, these new usages are still far, on average, from representing the majority of TV usage. But every day, over 4 million people watch TV on their online screens for over 2 hours and this population is constantly growing!

What are the next steps for Médiamétrie in terms of 4-screen measurement

We will continue to improve the measurement and provide additional metrics / services. Our objective is to make this new measurement the currency. But besides that, our focus will also be to expand our TV media planning ecosystem to include those new usages. These evolutions require to understand how in the near future TV will want to sell their online TV inventory. Will the non-linear advertising model prevail the traditional linear ad-model?  I can tell you that we follow the market’s discussions very closely.

Virtual Reality & immersive strategies to win young adults’ loyalty

A few months ago, a range of Virtual Reality experimentations on video content started to be accessible for the public. Today, TV broadcasters continue to run those new technology experiences and reinforce their investments.

Some TV broadcasters create dedicated VR and 360-degree programmes or video platforms to promote their flagship series. In August 2016, Discovery Communications launched its own dedicated VR platform: Discovery VR. In this platform, where all content is available for free, Discovery proposes the Shark Week videos, viewable in 360-degree or in VR with VR headsets such as Samsung VR Gear or Oculus Rift. It offers an up-close and personal exhibit of sharks making their viewers part of the scene.

Sports have also been a perfect experimentation ground in a year full of major events. MTG’s Viasat was the first broadcaster in the Nordics to make live sports content available in virtual reality with the broadcast of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The Viasat Sport 360 app brought viewers closer to the action than ever before.

If virtual reality and 360-degree videos enabled content providers to easily seduce and win young adults’ loyalty, other initiatives allow to keep the bond with this ultra-connected target. To accompany and promote the launch of the event documentary series Les années Obama, the Franco-German broadcaster ARTE launched millennial targeted short videos, inspired by YouTube tutorials and social media codes. Those videos, called TutObama, imagine Barack Obama giving advice to other political leaders in the world like François Hollande or Angela Merkel. Obama/Manuel Valls video posted on the Arte Facebook page has been viewed more than 333,000 times.

In the United States, The Food Network has ordered YouTube star Hannah Hart a six-episode travel and food series starring the comedian. Each episode of the series will be accompanied by distinct digital and social content that will leverage Hart’s social media following across YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram, as well as FoodNetwork.com.

Transmedia and immersive strategies do not only catch TV viewer’s attention during new programme launches, it enables broadcasters to stay attractive after several seasons. For the 11th season of the singing contest The Voice, NBC organised a casting on Snapchat. The same four coaches as in the TV show have watched videos posted on the social network and selected one singer each. During the fifth and final show, the Snapchat spectators voted to choose the best “The Voice on Snapchat” among the four selected singers.

To celebrate the 10th season of the reality Secret Story, the French channel TF1 created a “secret community” of influencers and journalists by sending them boxes of “Secret Cookies” which contains pink and blue (iconic colors of the show) fortune cookies, filled with real and fake secrets of the future housemates.

In this competitive sector, internet presence and transmedia experiences are unavoidable to maximize broadcasters’ reach, but the virtual reality and new technology experiences could allow some of them to make a difference and distance others.

From YouTube to Netflix: the multi-screen strategy continues to advance

The last few months in the YouTube scene have been eventful. While vlogs/pranks still dominate the YouTube scene globally, factual YouTube channels are increasingly on the rise, with many featuring among the fastest-growing channels across different countries.

Factual YouTube channels often provide top-list on various topics (Be Curious in Italy, with +96% monthly views in November; Top Ranking, +63% monthly views in Spain), focus on the extraordinary (Mundodesconocido, +395% in Spain, October), or function as a news network (ODN in UK, with 686M total views as of January).

In particular, the trend for YouTube formats to travel across different platforms and screens continues with heightened vigor. Previously, the beginning of 2016 was a successful period for many YouTubers to make a smooth transition to TV. Vlogger Hannah Witton features as a presenter in the magazine Love Fix, discussing the modern world of sex and dating. The webseries Broad City by Youtubers Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, has been renewed for 2nd and 3rd season in 2016 on Comedy Central.

Then, late 2016 saw another blooming direction for YouTube exports: Netflix. First was the one-off comedy film Internet Famous on Neflix starting July 21st 2016. Starring many hit YouTubers (Amanda Cerny, Christian DelGrosso, Wendy McColm among many others), the film tells the story of talentless internet youngsters trying to score their own TV appearance. 2 months later, this trend continues with Netflix’s new series “Haters back off”, based on YouTuber Miranda Sings’ popular slogan, who plays a hopeless and messy girl hoping to become famous through her horrible singing. Riding the successful momentum, on December 27th, Netflix takes a further step by launching a new reality TV show “Chasing Cameron” starring YouTuber Cameron Dallas.

These Netflix original formats clearly reflect a strategy to appeal to a younger audience, as well as to benefit from an already existing client base. These new developments signify a natural progression in the YouTube market, as it becomes increasingly multi-screen compatible. Running parallel with the standardization of TV content, which encourages producers to develop formats that are easily exported internationally and digitally, YouTubers are also adopting a more structured, professional attitude for their content. This is particularly influenced by the introduction of YouTube Red in late 2015, which subsequently prompted many popular existing YouTubers to produce higher-quality materials.

As a result, some YouTubers are rising to fame by adopting reality formats from TV: the channel Jeremstar by Jérémy Gisclon is a reality YouTube channel, where he posts videos of him interviewing famous pop figures in a bathtub. The channel featured among the fastest-growing channels of France in September (+132% monthly views) and November (+64%) in terms of monthly views. Similarly, YouTuber Sam Zirah’s reality interviews of French TV stars also land him among the top channels of September (+167%) and November (+45%).

With these trends in place, YouTube viewers can certainly expect to see a higher overall quality in YouTube content, as well as expecting innovative future formats.
