Our clients and partners report on their successes, projects and relationship with Eurodata TV Worldwide.
all3media international – Veronica Pottinen – Head of Insight – United Kingdom

Can you tell us about your recent successes?

Insight is a relatively new department at all3media international, but in the last 18 months we have established ourselves very much at the heart of the company. In many ways, we act as a bridge between the distribution teams and the production companies that supply our content.

We work closely with the EMEA Sales teams in London as well as our international offices in APAC and the US, providing market intelligence and analysis that help identify new opportunities in Southeast Asia and close deals in Latin America.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the launch of Midsomer Murders, one of our most successful brands. In line with the restoration and celebration of this brand, we have assessed its level of international success and supported renewal negotiations in key territories.

As of the beginning of this year, we also offer research and insight to the producers in the all3media Group, which sets us apart from most other distributors. We all operate in such a competitive environment and it’s more important than ever to make smart production decisions. We are proud to work with some of the best programme makers in the world, and I’m thrilled that we’re able to provide them with audience data and actionable insights that help them do that.

What are your main projects and strategy outlines over the coming months?

It’s a very exciting time for us as a business and Insight will continue to be an integral part in the company’s growth and development over the next year. Our catalogue is rapidly expanding and it’s our job to stay close to the content and work at an early stage with our Acquisitions team to identify trends and opportunities. Feeding into the content strategy is and will continue to be one or our priorities.

We already have a range of new, exceptions, shows coming through particularly on the scripted sideand the Insight team will work closely with Sales to find the best homes for this content. In terms of renewals, we’ll continue to monitor the value of our programmes to broadcasters worldwide, ensuring that we fully maximise commercial opportunities.

We are about to launch a new audience research initiative which will really demonstrate how committed the company is to supporting our producers. I really look forward to leading the Insight team into a new phase where we’re part of the entire journey from production and development to commissioning and international distribution.

How does the information provided by Eurodata TV Worldwide help you in your work?

International audience data is invaluable for us to be able to track the performance of our programmes and we rely on Eurodata TV to supply us with TV-ratings from around the world.

We also subscribe to the NOTA service, which allows us to monitor content trends and new launches in key markets. This is a very useful and accessible tool for Insight as well as colleagues in Acquisitions and Sales. In addition to the regular NOTA-reports, the database helps paint a comprehensive picture of the international TV-landscape and where the content is going.

Eurodata TV’s alliance with TAPE Consultancy has added additional expertise to the tools and services provided and we look forward to working with both companies going forward.

Veronica Pottinen joined all3media in 2016 in the newly-created position of Head of Insight. In this role, she has been responsible for integrating research and insight into the company, working alongside Sales, Acquisitions and Production to guide strategies and maximise commercial opportunities worldwide.

Interactivity to stimulate viewers engagements

Television broadcasters develop interactive formats and innovative experiences on both TV & mobile devices which draw attention on humanitarian or ecological issues. Interactivity also allows television broadcasters to learn more about viewers’ concerns and taste through interactive programmes that stimulate their engagement.

Serious games are inspired by current issues as the refugees’ faith

The French-German broadcaster Arte has developed a text-message-based game, Bury Me My Love, between a Syrian migrant, Nour, and her husband Majd who advices her back in Syria. The game’s mechanism is drawn from WhatsApp, often used by migrants to stay in touch with their relatives at home. The interface mimics the messaging app, players must assist Nour in her choices which consider her budget, her mood and their relationship. Discovery has also set up an online humanitarian challenge inspired by its documentary Genius exploring the iconoclast behind Einstein’s scientific achievements. Chasing Genius revolves around 3 critical issues: sustainability, global health and hunger. Applicants submit a one-minute video in which they expose their solution to those issues to an eclectic panel of professionals. Creating original contact points with the audience is not the only opportunity allowed by interactivity.

Television broadcasters can also learn more about viewers’ concerns and taste through interactive programmes that stimulate their engagement

The Norwegian broadcaster TV Norge has broadcast the game show Lost in Time that uses Interactive Mixed Reality on both TV and mobile devices. In this concept game, three contestants are transported into different eras where they compete in a series of challenges with the aim of winning one jackpot prize. Online players go further than triggering engagement, they develop multi-screen strategies to educate their young audience. Netflix launched its first interactive show, Puss in Book: Trapped in Epic Tale, a feature that relies on interactive storytelling. The show uses interactive cut scenes to allow viewers to select from branching decision paths. The viewer must choose how the story develops. Thus, Netflix analyses which choices young viewers are making to better understand what they enjoy in their programming.

Attracting a young audience is a crucial goal for traditional and pure players

YouTube helps to reach this key target and is a stepping stone for young talents who can experiment various forms of creation. The French broadcaster TF1 has produced a new mini series with Norman, Cyprien and Natoo, three French YouTubers. In Presque Adultes, they interpret their own roles as they express the difficult transition to adulthood using humour. Besides, in Finland, Arttu Lindeman was discovered through YouTube as a singer. Now, he has his own TV show, Lindemania, on TV5 in which he receives famous guests who talk about and play music.

Pure players’ rapid evolution forces traditional players to reinvent their programming and multi-screen strategies. Indeed, television broadcasters create entry points with their audience, as interactive programmes on current issues or inspired by popular shows, famous YouTubers, to meet their expectations.

All the facts and figures of these programmes (and much more!) can be found in the 4-Screen Quarterly Report, Edition 2 2017. The report was released in July 2017. For further information, please contact us!

How do the Indian media groups implement new strategies to remain competitive?

The television industry has seen its viewership increase, more particularly on free-to-air television, as content quality is not far from what pay TV channels offer and also because the mandatory digitisation in the country is making price-sensitive consumers opt for less expensive options. How do the Indian media groups implement new strategies to remain competitive?

Besides this, competition in the TV industry has increased in recent months with the entrance of more free-to-air channels and new international players such as Amazon and Netflix. To face this competition, and follow the digital consumption trend, media groups have decided to shut down some of their TV networks and switch all of their content towards their online platforms. This was the case of Zindagi, the premium Hindi entertainment channel of Zee TV. In June 2017, Zee TV announced that all of Zindagi’s catalogue would only be available through its video-on-demand (VOD) platform, Ozee. Meanwhile, Sun TV Network chose to increase its content distribution on other devices by launching Sun NXT, an online platform where viewers can watch their favourite TV programmes anytime, anywhere and on any device.

Increasing the availability and distribution of content is one of the many dynamics media groups should have to stay competitive. Besides doing this, some media groups have entirely revamped their TV channels, such as Star India which just recently renamed and rebranded its 2nd general entertainment TV channel and relaunched it as “Star Bharat”. Star India, not only modified the name and logo of the TV channel, but also modified its editorial line and TV scheduling.

All of these changes were made by adding local elements with which Indian audiences could identify. For instance, Star Bharat came up with a strong editorial line that linked traditions and modern entertainment by preparing the musical show “Om Shanti Om”, a mix of devotional music with trendy music. Zee TV, instead, bet on an already locally established production by launching “Kumkum Bhagya”, the spin-off of its popular series “Kundali Bhagya” and relying on an established fan base.

The content offer has intensified as the prime-time slot has increased with the addition of an early prime time slot (starting at 6pm) that goes on until midnight. Thus, broadcasters have entered a competition that requires the production of “original” content to attract audiences. For instance, Zee TV recently launched “Bhootu”, a series that tells the story of Pihu a seven-year-old girl who looks for her mother not knowing she is herself death.

Likewise, other broadcasters are betting more on visual effects such as Sony Entertainment Television which recently launched “Vighnaharta Ganesha”, a mythological drama production that is using Motion Capture technology for television for the first time. Due to its rapidly growing economy, large population, the multitude of languages and the emerging middle class, India is one of the most attractive markets. With more than 670 million potential viewers and 153.5 million households measured, it is the 2nd world TV market.
