    Super Bowl takes home the trophy for most-watched US programme of all time

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 03 February 2015


    The Super Bowl showdown between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks clocked in as the most watched television programme in US television history.

    In all, 114.4 million people tuned in to the 49th Super Bowl broadcast, aired on NBC. It was a close contest, decided in the final 30 seconds. Viewership swelled to a peak at 120.8 million viewers from 9.45-10pm ET, during the fourth quarter.

    That translated into overnight ratings of 49.7, the game's highest ever overnight result.

    The numbers are up 2.2 million viewers from the previous high, which was last year's game between Seattle and the Denver Broncos. That match (a blowout) drew a 47.6 rating overnight though, making it third in line now after 2013's 48.1 rating.

    The event had a halo effect as well. The Blacklist's postgame 8.7 rating was good for 26.5 million viewers, making it NBC's most-watched scripted show in more than ten years. It also pulled a 13.4 rating. That's a 9% improvement over FOX's showing of New Girl in that coveted slot last year.

    Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show meanwhile rated 6.2, the best late-night postgame rating since 1998 and double the rating drawn by 2013's after-game Late Show With Craig Ferguson.

    Grudge Match preps TV/gaming update

    DetailsMichelle Clancy | 03 February 2015


    Grudge Match Sports is gearing up to officially launch this August, as a multi-pronged entertainment platform that includes a video game, online streaming platform and an updated television show, based on the 1991 Grudge Match TV programme.

    "We were way ahead of our time," said Rich Melcombe, creator of Grudge Match, and president and CEO of Richmel Media & Productions. "People were not used to seeing ordinary people fighting it out in a boxing ring over a simple dispute or act of revenge."

    Grudge Match television will be spearheaded by Grudge Match's original director, Bob Dunphy, a veteran boxing and MMA director, and Melcombe. Grudge Match TV will feature real people – amateurs with real grudges – fighting hand-to-hand combat, or with weapons, to settle their disputes. Incorporated into every television show will be two to three video game matches featuring the best Grudge Match game players.

    "I'm excited to be part of Grudge Match Sports," said Dunphy. "The original Grudge Match became a pop culture phenomenon, but since then, technology and storytelling have changed. We are going to deliver audiences a very exciting, entertaining, nonstop action show, and create the ultimate e-sport platform."

    Meanwhile, a cross between Steam and Twitch, Grudge Match Universe will be Grudge Match's streaming platform.

    "No one under the age of 35 seems to know about eSports, yet they have become more popular than the average MLB, NBA, college football and basketball game," said Melcombe. "Last year 18 of the top 20 18-49 targeted cable networks lost audience, and many media outlets have given different theories as to what happened. I can tell you where they've gone. They are playing, competing or watching e-sports."

    Namibia begins analogue TV switch-off

    DetailsRebecca Hawkes | 03 February 2015


    The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has switched off analogue television transmission in the central towns of Windhoek, Rehoboth and Okahandja.

    Working in collaboration with free-to-air stations One Africa Television and the religious channel Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), the signals were turned off on 31 January 2015.

    "Namibia is among the top four countries in the SADC [Southern African Development Community] region that have started with switching off analogue viewing," Ockert Jansen, commercial manager, digital terrestrial transmission, NBC told SAPA.

    Digital terrestrial TV (DTT) coverage in the country is reportedly at 66.7%, with a target of 67% by 17 June 2015.

    Namibia's analogue viewers require a DTT set-top box to receive seven television channels, including NBC 1, 2 and 3, One Africa TV, TBN, EDU TV and the soon to be launched local music channel This TV as well as ten radio stations.

    Digital decoders will normally be priced at NAD199 (US$17), though pensioners, war veterans and disabled people will pay half this figure. A current TV licence and ID will be required to buy a decoder.

    The analogue switch-off in Windhoek, Rehoboth and Okahandja was delayed from its original date of 15 December 2014, so that more people could purchase digital decoders.

    Video streaming comes of age in Japan with 31% sector growth in 2014

    DetailsRebecca Hawkes | 03 February 2015


    Japan is beginning to embrace digital video, witnessing 31% growth in the sector last year to JPY81 billion (US$670 million) and marking its card against the country's robust packaged video market.

    With 82 million smartphones at the end of 2014, equating to 65% penetration, Japan now has nine million registered subscribers to mobile video-on-demand (VOD) services – a rise of eight million since 2011, according to Futuresource Consulting.

    "Japan's home video market is the second largest on the planet, surpassed only by the USA," said Joanna Wright, senior market analyst, Futuresource Consulting.

    "It has a strong packaged video sector that continues to provide the lion's share of revenues, but high broadband penetration, strong uptake of connected devices and a willingness to pay for premium entertainment are all finally coming together to galvanise interest in digital services."

    Pay-TV accounted for 50% of the country's video spend in 2014, and is predicted to rise to 54% of overall video spend in 2018. This is low compared to the UK and USA, but must be considered within the context of a nation where free-to-air broadcasting accounted for 61% of households in 2014, and is still expected to serve 56% come 2018, say researchers.

    Packaged video accounted for 48% of Japan's home video spend in 2014, with both rental and sell-through retaining their position, thanks to the growth of Blu-ray. Overall home video spend is set to remain relatively stable, to reach a total of JPY1.3 trillion by 2018, says Futuresource Consulting.

    Cheers for Budweiser as leading Super Bowl ad

    DetailsEditor | 03 February 2015


    The highlight of the US advertising industry, the Super Bowl 2015 didn’t fail to disappoint, with humour continuing to be most effective in capturing the attention of viewers.

    According to TiVo Research — said to be the only audience research service using second-by-second viewership data to rank top Super Bowl spots based on actual commercial retention relative to overall programme viewership — the top ten commercials and promotions from Super Bowl XLIX were the Budweiser - Lost Dog (song by Sleeping at Last); Joyful Heart Foundation - 911 Delivery; Doritos - Middle Seat; Nationwide Insurance - Invisible Mindy Kaling; Supercell: Clash of Clans - Revenge featuring Liam Neeson; FIAT 500X - Blue Pill; Snickers - The Brady Bunch featuring Danny Trejo; Avocados From Mexico - First Draft Ever; Coca-Cola - #MakeItHappy; Nissan - With Dad (song by Harry Chapin).

    For the fifth year in a row, TiVo found viewership for the half-time show exceeding that of the overall game. The top re-watched moments from the game itself were (1) 10.04pm ET the fight in the final seconds of the game, (2) 10pm ET Tom Brady and Richard Sherman’s reaction to Malcolm Butler's goal-line interception and (3) 9.56pm ET Jermaine Kearse’s catch.

    “From start to finish this year’s Super Bowl was full of emotion, but humorous spots still resonated the most with viewers. Our research highlights the most watched nail-biting game moments, the always present humorous ads, as well as more substantive ads and a half-time performance of a lifetime,” said Tara Maitra, senior vice president, general manager content & media sales at TiVo. “TiVo Research’s second-by-second behavioural insights into Super Bowl viewership will again provide networks and brands access to the big data they need to optimise media efficiency.

    Strongest growth in TV product take-up drives TalkTalk Q3

    DetailsEditor | 03 February 2015


    UK ISP TalkTalk has delivered what is perhaps one of its strongest quarters in recent history including its strongest growth ever in aggregate take-up of new products in TV, mobile and fibre.

    TalkTalkFor third quarter for its 2015 financial year, the ISP posted total revenue of £449 million, up 4.2% year-on-year with on-net revenue up by 6% year-on-year to £334 million. The company also showed accelerating year-on-year revenue growth (4.2%), and calculates that it is on track to deliver at least 4% in FY15. On-net churn was reduced to its lowest level (1.3%) in three years.

    TalkTalk claimed strong response to the launch of its quad-play offering with 115,000 net additions for TV services as well as 15,000 in broadband, 50,000 in mobile and 88,000 for fibre. The firm also noted that its acquisition of Tesco broadband and blinkbox will accelerate development of its IPTV proposition.

    "Today's results demonstrate the strong and growing demand for our value-for-money products, as we saw our strongest ever quarter of TV, mobile and fibre adds with our lowest ever reported churn," commented TalkTalk chief executive Dido Harding.

    "We are excited about the future of quad-play. TalkTalk is ideally positioned to push home its strategic advantage in an industry undergoing major changes. Our customers recognise the significant savings they can make on all four products from TalkTalk. We have the largest unbundled network in the UK, a new long-term mobile access agreement, and one of the broadest ranges of film and TV content, all of which is underpinned by a pro-competition regulatory environment. We remain confident in our plans for delivering sustainable growth and a more profitable business over the medium term, and remain on track to deliver our FY17 targets."
